I have been amazed and appalled at the number of women who on our Facebook news feed have posted the “Me Too” hashtag. This has become the rallying cry for those who have been sexually harassed or assaulted. The idea was to bring awareness to the magnitude of the problem. And with 1.2 million tweets and millions more posting on Face Book, in six short days it has done just that. But for many the experience was too painful to make public and would only reinforce the trauma. However, for others it is empowering.
Today’s verse contains a truth that is even more empowering. Nothing is hidden from God’s sight. What is done in secret will one day be revealed. What was thought to be covered up forever will be uncovered before the One who will mete out perfect justice. No one will ever get away with anything. That is a balm that can heal a lot of deep lasting wounds.
I am thankful not to have experienced such trauma and my heart goes out to those who have. But unfortunately, I have been robbed, cheated, and have had my reputation attacked. There is no proof. There is no recourse. However, I can leave the retribution to Him. He has promised to repay and avenge the evil much better than I ever could (Romans 12:19). He sees it all and He is the Master of transforming what is unthinkable, pouring out healing and blessing. What was intended to harm, God is able to turn around for good (Gen.50:20).
Thank you Lord, for the justice You promise.
