“When I choose a time,
I will judge fairly.”
Psalm 75:2 HCSB
9-11. A day forever etched into the hearts and minds of most Americans. We knew evil existed because we heard about it on the news, but most had not personally identified with atrocity the likes of which we saw that day. To be sure, evil acts are nothing new. History has witnessed the holocaust of Jews, mass murders by wicked dictators and terrorists bludgeoning entire villages.
In an age of evil lurking at seemingly every turn, how does the Christian respond to injustice? Where is God? Why does He seem to be silent?
“If judgment were left in our hands, we would probably let it flash out against anything that displeases us whenever we see it. But God lets evil go unchecked sometimes for a rather long time, knowing that he has appointed a proper time when it will be brought down.” (Boice)
God tells us to leave this issue of justice to Him. In due time, according to His power, justice will be executed.
“Stop your fighting—and know that I am God,
exalted among the nations, exalted on the earth.”
Psalm 46:10 HCSB
