God, Our Most Merciful Judge


Thank God for the knowledge of the Truth that God is our ultimate Judge, the one we can go to for the fairest verdict!

In the Bible we read from Isaiah 54:17, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” I have learned that we can rely on this promise with absolute confidence, no matter what the injustice might be.

Years ago during my early times in studying Christian Science, I was confronted with a work situation which seemed plainly unjust. I was learning to trust God more and so, although I was disturbed by this, I kept praying about the situation.

Some of the thoughts that came were the fact that no one but God can use me and also that God’s law of adjustment was in operation and would bring that unfair situation to pass.

Then I realized that if I was relying on God, I had to rid my thinking of the resentment I was entertaining towards the perpetrator. This also required prayer to align my thought with good and to see what was true about God’s man. This took me some time to do, but I was able to let go of that awful feeling of resentment.

Shortly thereafter I got the thought to go to the human resources department and talk with the department head. I did this, and the whole problem was fairly solved.

I learned from this experience to be alert myself to obey the Golden Rule and treat others as I would like to be treated. I most importantly learned firsthand, the power of the ever-operating divine justice, which is here and everywhere for all to rely on.

Mrs. Eddy says: “Justice waits, and is used to waiting; and right wins the everlasting victory. … Though clouds are round about Him, the divine justice and judgment are enthroned.” (Misc. 277:10-12, 25-26 )
