Making the wrongs right

The Lord works righteousness; does justice for all who are oppressed. ~ Psalm 103:6 (CEB)

I heard a voice thunder from the Throne: "Look! Look! God has moved into the neighborhood, making his home with men and women! They’re his people, he’s their God. He’ll wipe every tear from their eyes." ~ Revelation 21:3-4a (MSG)

Live as though God himself were on his way to make all the wrongs right -- because he is.
Lord, it is so easy to get discouraged by all the wrong that goes on in the world and is accepted as normal. Thank you for your plan and promise to bring justice and fairness. Please help me to stay encouraged especially when I feel overwhelmed. I so quickly forget your promises and I take the weight of the world onto my shoulders. Forgive me for trying to take your job away from you. I know that you will do it better than I could -- as long as I remember. Amen.
