A Righteous Judge

Accused, she wanted justice. To be freed from blame. Declared not guilty. So she went to the judge. Continually. Repeatedly. He finally gave it.

Rightly accused, we need justice.  To be freed from blame. Declared not guilty. So we pray to God, the Righteous Judge. He gives justice, speedily. All because of Jesus.

Read the whole story in Luke 18:1-11.

Joel’s Perspective on God

The Lord is powerful. He utters his voice before his army; and the heavens and the earth quake (Joel 2:11; 3:16).”

The Lord is also gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love (Joel 2:13).”

Our powerful and loving Lord wants us to pray. He says, “Return to me with all your heart (Joel 2:12).”

The Most Holy God

We enter the Most Holy Place to pray to a Holy God who is totally good and entirely without evil. Because of his holiness, God is above the weaknesses and imperfections of mortals and can accomplish the deliverance of his people.*

Who among the gods is like you, O Lord? Who is like you—majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders (Exodus 15:11)?
