The waiting time to see justice cannot make you unfair but must improve your faith even more, as it is the fuel to reach God's justice.

King Solomon said: “I said in my heart, “God shall judge the righteous and the wicked, For there is a time there for every purpose and for every work” (Ecclesiastes 3:17).

Injustice often has a “boomerang effect”. I am talking about the evil done intentionally, in which the person knows they are harming someone and insists on their lie. And it seems the person gets away with it; they have won, and evil has overcome good.

But, as it is written, God will judge the righteous and the wicked. Although God is the Righteous Judge, there is a time. This waiting time for God’s judgment makes the righteous unjust for wanting to take justice into their own hands. They lost trust in the Righteous Judge. Understand: God said, “Now the just shall live by faith” (Hebrews 10:38). He didn’t say it would be by ‘justice’. This means that many times, the just will experience injustice. But they live by their faith and not because everything is going well in their life.

The faith of the righteous will help them overcome even the injustices they face in this life. Because, despite being righteous, they live in an extremely unfair world. If the righteous do not have faith, they cannot expect God’s justice. And they cease to be righteous when they hurry to do justice.

It’s not that we’re nice, but that the only thing that makes us right with God is our faith. You say, “I suffered injustice. I will not accept. That will not remain like this.” Then you go and take the law into your own hands. You become liable to God’s justice for your injustice.

Solomon meant that sometimes God allows injustice because there is a purpose even in injustice. It could be teaching the righteous to have confidence. Perhaps it is to exalt the righteous in the eyes of others (as in the story of Mordecai in the Bible). But the righteous must persist in believing.

Pay attention: You who consciously commit injustice (you lied, cheated, stole, betrayed) know this time will pass. And when it passes, judgment will come to you. Justice has a “boomerang effect”. However, you can repent, and you can humble yourself before God.

For those suffering injustice: do not give in to the temptation to take justice into your own hands. The moment you do that, you will stop believing. And the just live by faith. Faith is part of your righteousness. Keep believing that God will preserve you. Bear it and take hold. It’s a difficult time, but it passes. Try also to understand the lesson that can be drawn from this injustice. You must say, “Oh my God, this is upsetting me. However, I know there is a purpose to this. I still don’t know what it is, but show me so that I can learn and that purpose is fulfilled in my life as soon as possible”.

So think about it and watch the video above.
