Nehemiah 9:33 “However, You are just in all that has come upon us; For You have dealt faithfully, but we have acted wickedly.
God is just, no matter what happens in our lives. In Chapter 9 of Nehemiah, the people are confessing their national sins, from the time they left Egypt to the current time of returning from exile. They listed how they sinned and God was compassionate and forgave them. Three times the phrase “your great compassion” is used and another time it is “your compassion”. God forgave them and delivered them time after time after time. However eventually the Israelite’s needed to learn their lesson. After the time for their punishment had ended God, once again had compassion on them and restored people to the land. A new temple was built and the walls were put back up around Jerusalem.
How similar are our lives. Time after time God has had compassion on us when we sin. Time after time he rescues us from the pit we are in. No matter what mess you are in right now, remember God is just. He has every right to walk away from us in our mess, He is Just. But God, promised to never leave you nor forsake you. Cry out to Him to show you His great compassion. He is faithful and loves us. His ways are for our best and we need to trust Him.
