“Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation. Oh, deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!” Psalm 43.1
Without faith and obedience we cannot be righteous before the eyes of God.
Although you may be righteous you still have to do your part. Even the righteous experience injustice in their daily lives.
Sometimes injustice remains in our lives because we choose to accept it. If that is the case God cannot help us.
In Luke 18 Jesus tells us about the widow who everyday was at the judge’s door knocking and seeking for her justice. She was so persistent that the judge grew exasperated with her. He thought to himself, “Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.”
The widow persevered in spite of his obstinacy and she prevailed in the end. Likewise we have to practice the same relentless persistence when we approach God.
If you are suffering any injustices, you cannot see justice until you seek it wholeheartedly like the woman in the parable.
You cannot cry out meaninglesly to God asking for help. No, in order for justice to be done you have to use a living, practical faith on the Altar.
Many want justice, but they run away from the altar. For these persons the altar is not joyous but a burden. Hence the reason they never see justice in their lives.
On the contrary they are abused, humiliated and utterly defenseless at times.
The justice of God is only done by faith, and faith does not exist without the altar!
