God is God, Judge, Psalm, Psalm 7, Psalm 7:11, Righteousness, Wrath
God is God. God is infinite, never changes, has no needs, all powerful, all-knowing, always everywhere, full of perfect, unchanging wisdom, faithful, good, just, wrathful, merciful, gracious, loving, holy, glorious, infinitely beautiful, and great. God is God.
- God makes things right.
- God is the only one who can.
- I clearly can’t.
- Justice isn’t within my grasp.
God is a God of justice. Jesus, the Messiah, has been given all authority and is committed to God like no other.
- God will make things right.
- I can count on that.
I thank God for that. I am eternally grateful.
God is a righteous judge, and a God who feels indignation every day.

The wrath of God is a fearsome and terrifying thing. Only those who have been covered by the blood of the Messiah, shed for us on the cross, can be assured that God’s wrath will never fall on them. “Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him!” (Romans 5:9).
Good news: Jesus can be described as ‘the deliverer from the wrath to come’ (1 Thes. 1:10); and Paul can write: ‘Since, therefore, we are now justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God’ (Rom. 5:9). On the other hand, the wrath of God remains upon all who, seeking to thwart God’s redemptive purpose, are disobedient to God’s Son, through whom alone such justification is rendered possible.
- Ephesians 5:6 (ESV) — 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
- Joshua 7:1 (ESV) — 1 But the people of Israel broke faith in regard to the devoted things, for Achan the son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took some of the devoted things. And the anger of the Lord burned against the people of Israel.
- Deuteronomy 9:7 (ESV) — 7 Remember and do not forget how you provoked the Lord your God to wrath in the wilderness. From the day you came out of the land of Egypt until you came to this place, you have been rebellious against the Lord.
- 2 Kings 22:13 (ESV) — 13 “Go, inquire of the Lord for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that has been found. For great is the wrath of the Lord that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not obeyed the words of this book, to do according to all that is written concerning us.”
- 1 Chronicles 13:10 (ESV) — 10 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he put out his hand to the ark, and he died there before God.
- Psalm 106:29 (ESV) — 29 they provoked the Lord to anger with their deeds, and a plague broke out among them.
- Jeremiah 32:32 (ESV) — 32 because of all the evil of the children of Israel and the children of Judah that they did to provoke me to anger—their kings and their officials, their priests and their prophets, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
- Zechariah 7:13 (ESV) — 13 “As I called, and they would not hear, so they called, and I would not hear,” says the Lord of hosts,
