Let The Lord Judge

“Therefore I have not sinned against you, but you wronged me by fighting against me. May the Lord, the Judge, render judgment this day between the children of Israel and the people of Ammon.” Judges 11:27

Community #1 is attacked by Community #2. Community #1 defends itself while Community #2 cries out that they’ve been wronged and the world agrees. Sounds familiar. Yes, let the Lord judge.

Lord, we thank You that You see exactly what’s going on when matters get complicated and twisted, when nothing is as it seems . . .when good becomes evil and evil becomes good. And here’s a simple poem . . .

One Day

Someone says they’ve been wronged
and another says they had a right
and the Lord God looks
upon this fractured sight
where nothing is
as it is proclaimed
knowing one day every knee will bow
at the mention of His name.

  1. “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”…

    That is something both to pray for and to wait for with a hope that will not be disappointed. Thank you so much for the important reminder that the Lord’s ways are immeasurably higher than man’s ways (Isaiah 55:8-9).

    Love,
    Theresa

  2. Thanks, Deb!

    It doesn’t always make sense but there is peace in knowing “The Lord, The Judge” has the final say! 😉 … And to think that even the most powerful of weapons are nothing in comparison to what He can do!

    Almighty,All Powerful God, we praise Your “great and terrible name” (Ps 99:3) . Let us not fear those who can only destroy the body but let us fear you, the One who is able to destroy soul and body! (Matt 10:28) We trust you to work out the kinks in the unfair situations. May your name be glorified.
    Deb, thank you for sharing this. I see His hands at work in you all the time but this is an answer to prayers! 😉 The timing is just right 🙂

    Blessings,
    Ann
    Amen

  3. “…where nothing is
    as it is proclaimed…”

    More often than not, we believers find ourselves agreeing with the accuser of the brethren rather than the Judge. Hopefully, our eyes will soon be opened.

  4. Thanks Deb! Looking forward to the day when everything will be “made sight” and every wrong will be made right!

  5. “Therefore, I have not sinned against you, but you wronged me in fighting against me.”
    I love all the great responses to this post, but my mind went in a completely opposite direction!
    I’m thinking of my ex-husband, whom I loved with all my heart. He took my innocent love and “wronged me” in so many ugly ways; when I finally stood up for myself and my children, he continually “fought against me.”
    Strange how my pure and simple love was attacked and smothered by the object of my affection. Thankfully, I discovered where to focus my love…on my Savior!
    The only explanation for my ex-husband’s behavior is that evil must try and destroy the goodness of God…thankfully, Jesus prevailed over all the ugliness, and protected me and my boys.
    Praise His Holy Name!
    love you my deb 🙂
    bee
    p.s. hope this wasn’t off topic!

  6. Deb,
    Wow, talk about a power packed scripture to write on, and one we can all relate to. It gives me comfort to know that it matters not what everyone else thinks, God knows all!. God Bless-Jim

  7. To wait with a hope that won’t be disappointed . . .thank you so much for that, wonderful woman of the Word! 🙂 As I get older and older, the waiting is getting easier in this regard. Maybe He is increasing my trust in Him? Hope so!!!
    God bless you as you pray and wait for Him!
    love you!

  8. Thank you, Ann full of grace, for that scripture packed prayer! 🙂 May we continue to be assured of His justice and righteousness. Loving that there is peace . . .just in knowing Him!
    God bless you and encourage you today!

  9. Great comment and insight, as usual, Larry! 🙂 Praying for our eyes to be opened too! God bless you as you proclaim His truth.

  10. I love that, Pastor J . . .everything thing made sight and every wrong right. 🙂 We can trust Him with this. God bless you and yours and your ministry!

  11. I loved your comment beautiful Bee . . .so not off topic! 🙂 This is how His word works and is alive, in that it can minister to us all, whatever we are dealing with. Your example was a very good one, although the experience of you going through it is beyond hard. That you lived and are His beloved gives us all hope in our Judge.
    God bless you and thank you for sharing the way you do here , Bee!
    love and prayers!!

  12. This can relate to your situation at work too, can’t it? It takes some focus to not listen to all the talk going on about who did what to whom . . .and just listen to Him and know that He’s got it covered.
    God bless you, Jim, and the way you bring us to Him in what you write!

  13. Hi Debbie,

    I’m glad I stopped by today! 🙂 Wow! Such a powerful message is delivered in the Scriptures and the poem! The scenario does sound familiar. it is a comfort to know that every wrong will be made right, by the Lord, the Judge. With the Lord on my side, no weapon formed against me shall prosper. God be praised!

    Thank you Debbie! The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: the LORD make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: the LORD lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

  14. A little AA wisdom tonight… a little gross, but true. Please delete me if you want!

    A resentment is like peeing your pants. You’re the only one who feels it. When we’ve been wronged it’s up to us how we choose to deal with it because you are the only one being made miserable.

    God is bigger than all our enemies. Lifting them up in prayer is a guaranteed way to let it go and honor Him.

    Good one, Deb… hugs : )

  15. I love your constant trust and praise of Him. 🙂 It’s really hard not to get excited when we read your comments and posts. Thank you!
    And thank you for that oh so beautiful prayer. That got me tearing up.He is indeed blessing me in all those ways and it can really get to me. Humbles me. A good place to be.
    God bless you, Paulette, and how you never hesitate to praise His name!
    love you!

  16. Delete you??? Never! 🙂
    I love your AA wisdom and how you remember so much and apply it in ways to help us understand Jesus more and more. I love the letting go and honoring Him . . .that is the best thing ever!
    God bless you, dear Linda, as you stay close to Him tonight!

  17. And what a blessing it is, Debbie, to hand it over to the Lord. His vindications are glorious & humbling aren’t they?.

    Bless you & your work
    Roger

  18. Thank you, Roger, for such a faith-filled answer, knowing in Whom we trust and how He works . . .gloriously! Yes, it is humbling when I’ve stewed and then He’s shown up. Better to just go straight to humble and skip the stewing part. 🙂
    God bless you as you remain strong and sure of your Jesus!
