After reading several of my friends comments on facebook after the verdict yesterday I thought this was a wonderful daily devotion from my Church!
July 6, 2011
"So Moses brought their case before the Lord. And the Lord replied to Moses, "The claim of the daughters of Zelophehad is legitimate. You must give them a grant of land along with their father's relatives. Assign them the property that would have been given to their father." Numbers 27:5-7
The pounding gavel echoed through the courtroom as the judge took his seat.
"This court is now in session. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, have you reached a verdict?"
"We have, Your Honor. We, the jury, find the defendant not guilty."
A gasp lingers throughout the courtroom. "How can this be?" one person whispers. "What?" another says in a low voice. A family sobs on one side of the courtroom, quietly clinging to each other, dismayed by the miscarriage of justice.
Sadly, it has become an all-too-familiar scene.
But, with God, things are different. His justice is perfect. In the passage of Scripture today, Moses brings the request of Zelophehad's daughters before the Lord. The Lord declares the claim legitimate, and issues His pronouncement of justice. Victory for the daughters of Zelophehad!
How wonderful to know that one day there will be no more miscarriages of justice - God's perfect justice will reign supreme!
May you rest in the hope and the promise of God's perfect justice in your life today.
