In Romans chapter three, verse five, Paul raises a very important question. Is God unrighteous who takes vengeance? When we consider our belief about God, our theologies, we need to consider whether or not we believe our God is able to do the right thing.
Sometimes without realizing it, we judge God. We don’t think he should do things, the way he’s doing them. We don’t think he should allow things to happen that are happening. But we need to ask ourselves the question when we’re thinking that way, is God unrighteous? Will God ever do the wrong thing?
Abraham didn’t believe he would. In the book of Genesis, chapter 18, verse number 25, Abraham said, far be it that from you shall not the judge of all the earth, do what is right. He believed that his God would always do right. And we need to have that confidence to us.
Sometimes we look at the world around us, and there seems to be so much injustice, so much evil, but this is not the Lord. This is of mankind. This is of the devil. This is sin and rebellion.
God is a righteous God, he’ll always do what’s right. Jesus prayed to the Father, in the book of John chapter 17, and verse 25. And he said, Oh, righteous father. And that is the same attitude we’d have toward God. God is doing what is right. When it doesn’t seem right to us. We need to realize there are things that we don’t see, we don’t understand. There are things that God is doing in the bigger picture of eternity that we cannot comprehend.
We need to trust and believe that God always does, right. And he does, because he’s our righteous God. And I’m so thankful that not only is he righteous, but he with that is a loving and merciful God.
So trust God, he is doing what’s right. And if your theology ever questions that, go back to what Jesus said, and remember, he is our righteous father.
