God Is Not Fair

8:25 PM


He makes His sun rise on the wicked and on the good, 
and makes the rain fall upon the upright and the wrongdoers. 
-Matthew 5:45

God is not fair.

We say that God is a just Judge, but I also believe that He could be unfair.

Why?

God plays favorite. I know because I’m one of them.

Instead of punishing me, He shows me mercy.

When I run away from Him, instead of erasing my name on the palm of His hand, He runs after me. I could not escape His love.

When I want Him to leave me alone, He patiently waits for my return. 

Because He knows no matter how long, I will always come back home to Him.

He is a Lover who does not carry a grudge despite all the pain and the heartache I give Him. 
He does not keep a record of my wrongs (1 Corinthians 13:5). 

I lost count of the times He showed me that I am highly favored. 

Now, how can you say He is just? 

When all I do is disappoint Him and do wrong and all He does is forgive me every time, love me lavishly and unconditionally. Care for me patiently. Provide for me generously.

God is not fair. God loves everybody, but I’m His favorite. 

Tee hee.

  1. I don't know if I'm considered a Christian as I do have many reservations about Christian teaching and belief. I do believe in God though so my Christian friends say that's considered Christian. I've heard many true accounts of people telling me how God doesn't give up on them and would always forgive them so this resonates with me.

    1. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

      Ask Him to reveal Himself to you and He will.

      It is my fervent prayer that you one day accept Christ as your Savior. I would be proud to call you my Sister-in-Christ!

      I will be praying for you. Blessings.

  4. Yes I do understand what it is to be "SPECIAL" and to be His Favorite. We all need to realize that our God is a personal Father who loves us as his child. Thank you for your sweet comments on my sit about my visit to the Healing Rooms. Some churches have people who are hurting come down in front and are prayed for after the worship service. I do hope you are also attending a small group where prayer is often given. I will be doing some visitation to Holy Spirit Filled Churches in search of a place where I can teach and be a blessing.

  10. Hi, dear SuperLux! This is a useful affirmation that we can all carry with us and call forth whenever we feel as if we have committed too many sins to ever be forgiven. It is never too late to turn away from destructive behaviors and ask forgiveness as long as we are understanding, tolerant and forgiving of others in return. God has infinite patience with us and an unfathomable capacity for forgiveness. We must strive every day to follow His example.

    Thank you very much for these words to ponder, dear friend SuperLux, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  19. I think we are all His favorites... when I think about all the heartache I put Him through over the years I am in awe of how easily He forgives and loves me... He is always there, He never turns away from me, even when I am sure I deserve it... I love Him and I am grateful that He never gives up on me... He will never give up on any of us xox

  29. Hi Lux! I have seen tee-shirts with that phrase "God loves you, but I'm his favorite!" It really makes me smile!
    It was also so cute to read the line about your knowing that God has favorites, because you know you are. What if we all felt that way? How much better we'd all feel about ourselves, that's for sure.
    Thank goodness God loves and runs after us. Phew!
    Sunday blessings,

  40. This is an interesting point of view. Don't forget that we have a narrow perspective and can't see the whole picture, so I'm sure he has reasons for you to be favourite :))

  48. Hello greetings.

    Very inspiring.

    God favors every one including the worst sinners. I get great consolation in talking to God before sleeping lying in my bed. I talk and talk and thank HIM for all the things He has given me and in the process I fall asleep. God has blessed us with so many things which we don't deserve. Yes, I count my blessings when depression and despondency comes over me. I find myself slowly coming out of the despairing mood..

    Many times I feel God is unfair to me but in the end I realize that I am very blessed. HE has not deserted me at any time even in the worst times. I have been in many difficult situations and I thought I will never get out of them. But God always guided me safely.

    Excellent post.

    Best wishes

    1. God's Word promises that when we seek Him, we will find Him.

      I pray with all of my heart that you will seek Him. There is truly nothing in this world like the peace of knowing that God loves you and that you are in His perfect hands.

      I will be praying for you!

  66. Amen! What a true post. Yes, God does have time to play Favourite and I am glad I am one of his. But what I also know is that his grace and mercy extends to making us all favourites, and to know that he has time for each and every one of us. A post like this makes me happy to see it up on a Sunday.
