Jesus reminds us in the Gospels that just as He was persecuted, Christians all around the world will be unjustly accused. And as evil domination snowballs…so will injustice towards those of the Christian faith. For it’s not a matter anymore of if, but of when…for the world is becoming increasingly more brazen and emboldened in its attack of what once was considered sacred and off limits. But just as David declared to King Saul… the Lord is our only judge and it will be Him that will vindicate and deliver us. ( I Samuel 24:14-15)
Jacob had worked for his father-in-law, Laban, for 20 difficult years. But despite all the wrongful things done to him, Jacob knew God was watching over and defending him. We sometimes feel like God doesn’t see the injustices inflicted upon us…or the suffering we’ve endured at the hands of others. But He does, for God is with us not only in everything we do…but He also sees all the injustices that have been done to us. We just need to remember that the battle is His, and He will defend and vindicate us.
