Good Afternoon everyone,
Praise the Lord! Thanking God for a new day! Thanking Him for I can see, type, hear, walk, run, dance and laugh! Our God is the most high God! I just feel the sense of amazement and joy in my heart right now; I don’t know what it is but all I can say is that God is great! I think it’s just amazing that we have this platform where we can connect and seek God together! It’s just a blessing and if I’m being honest; the PoZ blog and family are very important to me and I love you all! Thank you so much for all the love and for all the prayers! You are the most amazing and the most beautiful bunch of people! I appreciate you all! God bless you!
As you all know, when I was in Nigeria, I attended Daystar Christian Centre Church and the Sunday before I left, the message that Rev Sam Adeyemi preached was on “Love and justice”. I just knew I had to share it with you; I briefly touched on this in my message about Nigeria but I know that this is a very important topic that needs it’s own post and I am positive that it will bless you and by God’s grace change your life forever. Amen! Let’s just give God the praise!
Firstly, I have to say that as Christians, we must stand for justice; at home, in the workplace and in our country! Justice is enforcing what is morally right and the God that we serve is a God of justice! Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne and rulership. That is how important justice is to our God!
Psalms 89:14– Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
Deuteronomy 10:17-19– For the Lord your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
When God loves you, He ensures that you are not cheated or deprived of what is yours. The other side of this is that He loves your neighbour as much as He loves you, so He won’t allow you to cheat your neighbour because He loves them equally.
Acts 10: 34– Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons
God insists on justice so each person won’t be deprived of what is rightfully their’s. We need to understand the purpose of the resources Jesus has given us. When you get power, the best thing to do with it is to ensure equality in the society and I say this boldly because I know that many readers are reaching their place of honour and lifting and this is our season of promotion, enlargement and announcement! Many of us our reaching new heights this season and assuming higher positions and responsibility and we must endeavour to use it rightly! Brothers and sisters, when you get power and you have the spirit of God in you, always try to create equality! Stand in the gap for the meek, the weak and the oppressed! Be it at your workplace, in your family, in your home, in your Church, department, even while you are standing at the queue in the grocery store! Everyday we watch things happen that are unjust but I ask you today; use your power to ensure equality wherever you go and in the society at large. Amen.
Isaiah 40:29- He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Luke 4:18-19– The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
We need to stand for justice at every opportunity we get. Injustice causes the society to disintegrate. Do you realise that one of the reasons that the Lord destroyed the city of Sodom and Gomorrah was because of injustice? I’m sure you missed that; I certainly did! Many of us think it was just because of homosexuality. However, there was so much injustice in that city.
Ezekiel 16:49– Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
