Remember the movie, “Count of Monte Cristo”? Marked on the wall of the cell were these words: GOD WILL GIVE ME JUSTICE.
God is concerned with every area of our life. In Matthew chapter 10, it says that not even the sparrow falls to the ground without God knowing about it. So, he is concerned with every area of your life. Since a lot of our time is spent in the working world, this would be an area where God pays a lot of attention.
We sometimes feel that God separates work and church the same way that we seem to. But our lives are one seamless “script” to God. He sees the end from the beginning and he knows when there’s something coming that is going to try to trip us up.
In the working world, and in our daily lives, we come across people who are trying to steal our favor. They will say things that are untrue about you. Sometimes, even your superiors will believe them. This can cause problems for you which come through no fault of your own. During these times, it is time to latch onto some scriptures that can help get you through it.
Psalm 94: 20 Can unjust leaders claim that God is on their side—leaders whose decrees permit injustice?
21 They gang up against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death.
22 But the Lord is my fortress; my God is the mighty rock where I hide.
23 God will turn the sins of evil people back on them. He will destroy them for their sins. The Lord our God will destroy them.
God has promised protection to those that fear him. He does not forbid us to ask for his justice in situations where we are being done wrong.
Psalm 94: 1 O Lord, the God of vengeance. God of vengeance, let your glorious justice shine forth!
2 Arise, O judge of the earth.Give the proud what they deserve.
3 How long, O Lord? How long will the wicked be allowed to gloat?
4 How long will they speak with arrogance? How long will these evil people boast?
5 They crush your people, Lord, hurting those you claim as your own.
6 They kill widows and foreigners and murder orphans.
7 “The Lord isn’t looking,” they say, “and besides, the God of Israel doesn’t care!”
8 Think again, you fools! When will you finally catch on?
9 Is he deaf—the one who made your ears? Is he blind—the one who formed your eyes?
10 He punishes the nations—won’t he also punish you? He knows everything—doesn’t he also know what you are doing?
11 The Lord knows people’s thoughts; he knows they are worthless!
We can tap into his protection when we are being attacked. The devil will send people your way that will make your life miserable! If you do not stand against the principalities and powers, you will be run over. But remember this:
Psalm 94: 13 You give them relief from troubled times until a pit is dug to capture the wicked.
14 The Lord will not reject his people; he will not abandon his special possession.
15 Judgment will again be founded on justice, and those with virtuous hearts will pursue it.
When you are attacked at work, it is not wrong to pray for God to remove the attacker. Now this does not mean that you pray for their destruction: you leave the solution up to God. It could mean that they receive a promotion that takes them out of your department. But, that would still be mission accomplished. At least they are not around to oppress you.
So, don’t just think that it is your lot in life to suffer around these people. Ask God to remove them so you can have a happy life. Check out the link below: God’s two sided hand of justice.
