GOD IS THE ULTIMATE JUDGE


Psalm 50 describes God as the righteous judge. Psalm 50:1-6 says, "The Lord, the Mighty One, is God, and he has spoken; he has summoned (called) all humanity from where the sun rises to where it sets. From Mount Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines in glorious radiance. Our God approaches, and he is not silent. Fire devours everything in his way, and a great storm rages around him. He calls on the heavens above and earth below to witness the judgment of his people. 'Bring my faithful people to me—those who made a covenant with me by giving sacrifices.' Then let the heavens proclaim his justice, for God himself will be the judge." There will be a time when God will bring judgment on this earth, and all humanity will see His glory. When God brings His judgment on this earth, He is going to deal with His chosen people, Israel. The nation of Israel is supposed to be His representative nation on this earth, but they failed to worship God as a nation. Israel offered sacrifices to God when the temple existed, but their sacrifices were not acceptable because their heart was not right before Him.

 

The lesson from today's devotion is that God is the ultimate judge of this world. Today, we see all kinds of corruption and evil. Many wicked people are taking advantage of innocent people. However, there will come a day when God will judge the wickedness of this world. As believers, we should not be afraid of God's judgment. His judgment is only for those who rejected Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Romans 8:1 says, "So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus." When we believed in Jesus as our Lord and Savior and surrendered our lives to Him, our Lord Jesus took away our sins with His blood that He shed on the cross; therefore, we are now forgiven before God. So, the judgment of God is no longer for us. When God's judgment comes upon this earth, it will be a relief for all of us who believe. We will witness God's judgment to His people, Israel, and all the rest of the wicked on this earth. 

 

We are no longer under God's judgment. We have been forgiven for all our sins because of what our Lord Jesus did on the cross for us. God is the ultimate judge of the wickedness of this world. All the evil of this world will stop someday, and God's righteousness will shine. 

 

Ask yourself these questions for application: (Think through carefully and meditate on the questions while answering them, and let the Spirit of God speak to you). Who is the ultimate judge of this world? Why does God's judgment no longer apply to me? How should I live my life knowing that God has forgiven all my sins?

 

Write down all the worries you face today and lift them up to God.

 

Prayer:

Father in Heaven, you are the ultimate judge of this world. There will come a day when you will end and judge all the wickedness of this world. Thank you that I am no longer under your judgment because of my genuine faith in the Lord Jesus. I am forgiven of my sins because of what Jesus did on the cross for me. Thank you for saving me. In your name, Lord Jesus, I pray. Amen.
