The Lord Will Not Do Iniquity

The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.

Zephaniah 3:5

I am encouraged by several things that I noticed in this verse.  Hopefully, they will be an encouragement to you as well.

“The just LORD is in the midst thereof.”  It is encouraging and comforting to me to think that the “just LORD is in the midst thereof.”  No matter what the situation I can be assured of two things, 1) the Lord is just and 2) the Lord is right there in the middle of it.  No matter what problem you may be facing, those facts will be a help to you.

“…he will not do iniquity.”  God is never going to do wrong.  I will do wrong.  You will do wrong.  Other people will do wrong.  But God will never do wrong.  I may not understand everything He does, but I can rest assured that whatever He does is right.  And it is when we do not understand what He is doing or why He is doing it that we can take comfort in knowing that He will never do wrong.

“…he faileth not.”  Not only is He always in the midst of whatever situation we may be in, and not only will He never do wrong, but He will also never fail.  If God wants to do something, it will be done.  He has never failed and will never fail.  Again, I have failed often.  You have probably failed often.  Every person has failed.  But not God.  He will never fail us.

Those are things that can all be a huge comfort and a huge encouragement if we will think about them and meditate on them.  He is always there, He will always do what is right, and He will never fail!
