God's word promises that He will deal justly with those who treat us unjustly. What a relief, especially when we have been beaten and are exhausted. Saul was dealt judgments by God because of disobedience. He lost his kingdom and it was given to David. Israel was defeated by the Philistines the next day and Saul along with his sons died in battle. This great downfall was all a result of his disobedience.
You see, as king, Saul was the spiritual leader of his people. (Just as pastors are spiritual leaders of their churches and husbands spiritual leaders of their homes) This means that as king he was accountable in great measure in his example of faith and obedience. Saul obeyed God to a point but selfishly refused to obey God all the way. Saul's life reflected that of a double minded man. (James 1:8) His life reflected confusion between his faith and fleshly living, meaning he held back part of his life from God.
I believe God deals with the unjust. I believe those who have treated me and others unjustly will in fact be dealt with justly by God. It is hard to stand back and wait when the world yells "fight" but as a child of God, revenge is not to be my motivation. Instead we must be motivated by His love in order to walk by faith and do what is right. God's justice is perfect and because we know this, we can be confident when dealing with opposition. By being confident, we are then free to love, forgive, and walk by faith.
Dealing with opposition requires strength and courage. When you feel like the world is against you, human nature screams give up, but God gives us the strength to survive and endure.
When God is for us, who could ever stand against us? (Romans 8:31) When the world comes against us, Christ Jesus, the God of the universe is for us!!
Remember that opposition comes from the enemy and can come from anyone in our life. Remember that Satan is opposed to God, His word, and His children. It is Satan's plan to turn people away from God. As Christ-followers we have to be aware that we will face opposition and unjust accusations. Remember that Jesus walked a perfect and blameless life and was still crucified. We must be patient and endure. (1Peter 2:19-21)
If you're walking through life receiving high fives and gaining the approval of man from your choices, take heed. Chances are you are walking in the flesh and not by faith and obedience. God will enact His perfect justice.
