God Loves Justice

by | Oct 23, 2011 | Purpose & Identity

For I, the Lord, love justice. —Isaiah 61:8

The God of the Bible loves justice, and if you are being treated unfairly, God knows it. It is only a matter of time, and He is going to compensate. That’s a promise. Let me tell you something about Jesus, God the Son: Jesus is full of compassion. Jesus sees your tears. He knows you’re hurt.

Did the Lord notice how Leah was feeling? The Bible says, “When the Lord saw Leah was not loved, he opened her womb” (Gen. 29:31). What was Leah’s compensation? Rachel, whom Jacob loved, was barren. Leah, the unloved woman, came through where it ultimately mattered. Nothing could stop Jacob being the father of many sons because God had foreordained it. Therefore, God’s word was at stake (Gen. 22:17). You could call it His sense of humor, you could call it His sense of justice, but when God saw that Leah was not loved, He opened her womb. Rachel, the one who was loved, was contributing nothing to this oath that God swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Leah gave birth to Judah, the one through whom the Messiah, God’s Son, came. Her crown was that she graced the church with glory as no other wife of Jacob could have done. Leah’s desire was to have a husband who loved her, but her crown was what she did for the future of Israel. Jacob never appreciated Leah, but God did. And so do we.

Are you an unloved woman? God knows that. He’s going to do things for you, and if you start counting your blessings, He’s going to make it up to you—it’s only a matter of time.
