Read Psalm 9
Psalm 9: 7-8:
But the LORD sits enthroned forever; he has established his throne for judgment. He judges the world with righteousness; he judges the peoples with equity. NRSV
God is the ultimate authority and He will exact judgment in the end. Sometimes we believe that some people can do whatever they please and get away with it. It would seem that some people are above the law of the land and even above God’s laws but nothing is farther from the truth. Even though they may be able to thwart the justice of the land and work things to their advantage, ultimately they pay for their sins because as the scriptures say, no sin goes unpunished. God is always fair. I never doubt that. God is watching our every move and He will judge us ‘according as our work shall be’. Being sidetracked by others should never become our business. Our business is to focus on God’s mandate and what He requires of us. We can control what we do and as agents of change we can work with God’s blessings and enabling power to do what He has called us to do.
