I’ve joined my blogging friends for a new facet of my blog, called His Encouragement, inspiring scriptures shared each Thursday. My hope and my prayer is that these scriptures each week will bless your heart and encourage your soul.
That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
Genesis 18:25 KJV
Have you ever been in the middle of negotiations at work or even with a family member and you say something to this effect, “you know what the right thing is.”?
In our scripture today, we find Abraham in those same circumstances, with the exception that he is negotiating with the God of Heaven for the lives of his nephew and family in Sodom and Gomorrah before God burns it to the ground. He concludes his argument with this phrase “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
We answer, of course! It seems so obvious. Would God do anything but the right thing?
But by whose definition of what’s right? By Abraham’s? By Lot’s? How do we know what’s right and what’s wrong? Who determines what the right thing is?
The point I’m trying to make this morning is that the Great Judge of all the earth will always do what’s right. It’s impossible for him to do anything else but the right thing. That means he will always do the right thing by you, his child. Sometimes we may not think he is, but that’s because our definition is not the same as his.
He will always do what is just and what is right. Trust Him. He has everything under control. The Judge of all the earth will always do the right thing.
