Daniel 9:14 – The Lord our God is righteous in everything He does.
God is not like people. He is never wrong. Sometimes when hardships come upon us, our minds tend to analyse the situation and conclude what went wrong. Our God doesn’t need to introspect like how we do. He has never rendered a wrong decision, experienced the wrong attitude, taken the wrong path, said the wrong thing, or acted the wrong way. He is never too late or too early, too loud or too soft, too fast or too slow. He has always been and always will be right. He is not a person who brings you to a certain situation and when in trouble tries to think what to do next. He is never in a fix. He has sorted every minute detail of your life in eternity past itself.
When the Hebrew boys, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah were thrown in the fiery furnace because they didn’t obey the king’s command to bow down before his golden image, God was in control. He was seeing His children being thrown into the raging fire. He is not someone who was thinking what to do next. In fact, He had planned long before itself that He is going to walk with them in that fiery furnace and protect them (Dan. 3:25). He is a righteous God.
Can you also be strengthened in your faith knowing that if you are obedient to Him, whatever God does in your life is always right and good. After all, He knows what is right. Can you think of certain things that have happened in your life which you couldn’t control? What happened at that moment? Can you accept the fact that God did what was right and best for you at that moment in your life? Thank and praise Him for His wisdom.
