Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
he will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
— Psalm 37:5–7 TNIV
I get so frustrated when people treat me unfairly. I become completely heartbroken, anxious and upset. I worry for my pain, and, if someone I love is hurting me, I’m distraught for them — concerned for their happiness and their heartache. It’s some of the worst kind of pain.
God has given me hope over this situation from the above psalm. God will always protect those who are with him, and see that we receive the best that we deserve in the end. People will treat me badly and be completely unfair, but God will always stand by me. God will always stand by me. God is totally, wholeheartedly, completely on my side, at all times. He always sees my point of view. Always sees my side. Always sees my heart. He’s just as offended when I’m treated unfairly as anyone who loves me would be. He completely cares for me, and my welfare.
God will always stand by me. With God on my side how can I lose? How can I really lose, in the end? God sees the good in my heart and soul, and has told me I’m okay as I am. He loves me. He’ll support me, and ensure that things will work out.
Being treated unfairly can cause so much pain, but we need to believe in God, not that the situation will be rectified because of something we do to control things. God will fix things. We don’t know what will happen, but in the end God will look after us.
I try to look at things in too grand a manner sometimes, and wonder how God can be on my side, and on the side of every other Christian at once. But I don’t need to think this way. This kind of thinking stems from insecurity. I just need to be present with God, with him in the moment, and trust the things he says to me. If God says he’ll protect me, then he will. If God says I’m okay as I am, then I am, no matter what anyone says. God loves us. He’s on our side.
