God’s judgment is according to truth

Last updated on July 12, 2022


No creature is hidden from His [God’s] sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:13)

Human judges are limited in their understanding and knowledge. They can’t always be 100% sure of the facts of any case, but must rely on the testimonies of other people or the limited evidence that is available. This may cause their judgment to be unfair. But with God, this problem does not exist. Everything is open before Him. He has witnessed every sin that we have ever committed and every good deed we have ever done, even though we ourselves may have forgotten about them! He knows what we want to say even before the words leave our mouth and He knows our thoughts from afar. Therefore, He can judge us fairly and will never pass a wrong judgment.

To some, this is a terrifying fact. They would rather pretend to be better than they are! To others, this is comforting, since they are longing for justice and for the Lord to bring to light the things now hidden in darkness.

Does it comfort you that God knows everything and will judge according to truth?
