GOD IS ALWAYS JUST AND GENEROUS IF HE WANTS
The Lord build and rebuild if need be. See Exodus 4:11-12, The Lord said to him, Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.
See Romans 9:15–17, For He says to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion. It does not, therefore, depend on man’s effort, but on God’s mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.
It is not about what and what about you. It is about God and you. Someone else may have ideas, it is well, but you, hope and believed in God’s love stand for your best option. He create, judge, redeem and make perfect. The Lord is good and He cares for those who trust in Him. See Nahum 1:7, The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.
A believer should always remember. Read Isaiah 44:2, This is what the Lord says – He who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen. See Romans 12:3, For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. Also see Jeremiah 29:11–14, For I know the plan I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you, declares the Lord, and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.
Too many mysteries but God is always just – See John 13:7, Jesus replied, You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand. One can choose right and can choose wrong because God gives the ability to choose, but God will judge you according to your choice – See Ephesians 6:8–9, Because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free. And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that He who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with Him.
We need to rely on the promise of God, not our emotions; God’s grace is still in full force, even when you do not feel it. See Hebrews 13:5, Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
An amazing thing happens when we offer praises and thanksgiving to God for WHO he is and we are to thank Him for what He has done.
God always paid His promises with just and generous if He wishes.
The parable of the workers in the vineyard in Matthew 20:1–16. The landowner hired different groups of EXTRA workers.
Note the hours were 3, 6, 9 and 11 of the day. The last group hired, actually work 1 hour and received 1 denarius for their work, and the first group hired work for 12 hours and they received 1 denarius as promised.
We can see the fair and generous attitude of the man who was hiring the workers.
See Matthew 19:27–30, Peter answered Him, We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us? Jesus said to them, I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first. These are the blessings that will be received by those who leave everything to follow Christ.
Matthew 20 verses 2 and 10, He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard. So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. Did the first workers receive what the landowner promised to pay them, the answer is yes. See Deuteronomy 24:15, Pay him his wages each day before sunset because he is poor and is counting on it. Otherwise, he may cry to the Lord against you, and you will be guilty of sin. And then read verse 8 of Matthew 20, When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first. But in verse 13, the first group of workers complained, the landowner said that because he was paying them what he had promised, he was not being unfair and He said in verse 15 « Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? » Remember, when he hired the new workers, the landowner had said that he would pay them whatever is right.
If the landowner represents God, then what does this parable teach us about Him?
God is always just. See Matthew 20:15, Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money?
Therefore God is always just and God is free to be generous if He wants.
