But God is the Judge: He puts down one, And exalts another.
There have been big trials in the past that get us wondering if justice was carried out fairly. Every nation has this problem, as the judicial system is organized and run by human beings who are naturally flawed.
We don’t have to worry about that with our Heavenly Judge. God will judge fairly determine those who are lifted up and put down. Sometimes, we don’t agree with His decisions, but we also don’t the advantage of His foreknowledge.
I’ve talked to people in the past concerned about whether their deceased relatives or friends are in heaven or hell. I remind them of Revelation 16:7, written as Jesus judges an unsaved world. It says, And I heard another from the altar saying, “Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.”
When we get to Heaven, we’re going to understand God’s judgments, and we’re going to realize they are righteous and true.
Trusting in God’s judgments,
