Meditation Mondays: Our Just, Omniscient Redeemer
58 O Lord, You have pleaded the case for my soul;
You have redeemed my life.
59 O Lord, You have seen [m]how I am wronged;
Judge my case.
60 You have seen all their vengeance,
All their schemes against me. (Lamentations 3:58-60 NKJV)
It is comforting to know that God is omniscient (all-knowing/seeing). There is nothing that happens in heaven, on earth, or under the earth that does not pass through the hands of our Sovereign God. He knows all and sees all because He ordains all and is using everything in life to conform us more into the image of Jesus. Jeremiah comforted himself by reminding himself that the Lord sees.
It is comforting to know that God redeems His people. Jeremiah uses the language [The Lord] "pleaded the case for my soul" and [The Lord] "redeemed my life". Not only does the Lord see all and know all, but the Lord is active in redeeming His people. So as we suffer injustice and sickness this side of eternity, we can take heart knowing that God is redeeming us and making all things new.
It is comforting to know that God is just. Jeremiah asks the Lord, "judge my case". Jeremiah took comfort in knowing that all those who inflict injustice will face the eternal, awesome, and terrifying Judge. Those who inflict injustices will give an account. God will make everything wrong in the world right in the new heavens and the new earth and He will once for all do away with injustice.
So, take heart, dear believer. Our God is omniscient. Our God is redeeming His people. Our God is just.
