Please Search me and Know me...
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.
Please help me to rise above my anxieties and to put my full trust in You.
Please show me where I am wrong so that I can confess and correct that area of my life.
Please give me the wisdom, courage and conviction to repent and to always do what is right in Your sight.
Please lead me in Your way everlasting.
This I pray, in the name of Jesus,
Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God
The Trinity: The Judge of all the Earth
Far be it from You (God) to do such a thing as this,
to slay the righteous with the wicked,
so that the righteous should be as the wicked;
far be it from You!
Shall not their Judge of all the earth do right?
The Lord God is the Judge of All the Earth. Abraham asked, “Will the judge of all the earth do right?” (Genesis 18:25). The answer is yes. God will always do right, because He has a righteous nature. The Lord has done everything possible for the salvation of all. The Father revealed to the wicked their lost condition through nature (Romans 1:18-20), through their conscience (Romans 2:14-16) and through the existence of law (Romans 2:12-13). Jesus died for their sins. The Holy Spirit spoke to their hearts, drawing them to salvation (Genesis 6:3). The Lord God has done the right thing for everyone to be saved.
Yes Lord, I believe You are fair. Yes, Lord, I Believe You are the judge of all the earth and everyone will appear before You. Yes, Lord, I know You will always do the right thing.
The Lord God is the Judge of All the Earth. Jesus will judge all believers at the Judgment Seat of Christ to give His followers rewards (2 Corinthians 5:10). The Father will judge all unbelievers to find out if their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and will punish them according to their works (Revelation 20:12-15). The Lord deals with all people fairly, but it’s grace we need—not judgment. The Lord can look on the death of Jesus and forgive us if we’ll repent and trust Christ.
Lord, I fully trust You now and will trust You in the day of judgment. When You see my sin, look at the blood of Jesus, which forgives me. Look on me through grace. Amen.
