The Lord is Holy-

 Psalm 18:25-27 & 2 Samuel 22:26-28

25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful; to those with integrity you show integrity.
26 To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself astute.
27 You rescue the humble, but you humiliate the proud.

God is not remote and unconcerned about world affairs. He is actively aware of the lives and actions of all people, both those who accept Jesus as Savior and those who reject Him, the most powerful people and the weakest, the wealthy and the poor, educated and uneducated, well known and obscure, kind and unkind, humble and proud, etc.

Only the Omnipresent and Omniscient God can know the thoughts, words, and deeds of every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth at the same time. God can overrule the consequences of all that people think and say and do in His permissive will. David pictures a Holy God in Heaven who is attentive, safeguarding the interests of His children, and ultimately countering all the moves of people with assurance and results.

This is a picture of what Jesus does in providing justice. The Bible is full of it. We see Haman being hung on the gallows he had built for Mordecai A; we see Laban cheating Jacob who himself had cheated Esau B; We see David reaping murder and adultery in his own family after he himself had seduced Bathsheba and murdered her husband. C

When God exercises justice on a large or global scale it may be too complicated for us to follow. Therefore, we don’t always see justice at work; but we can be sure that for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.D; although it may be delayed or not on the a timeline we understand. God often allows impure people to accomplish His justice. Jesus, the High Priest, will insure that all are treated with grace and mercy in His judgment. In the end He will see that justice is impartially applied to all. E

Are you aware that God knows all your thoughts and actions and that you cannot hide from Him? Do you want justice or grace and mercy?
