5 Verses to Help You Through Injustice

Injustice is the condition or practice of violating standards of fairness. We all face injustice at some time in our lives. What if we feel that an injustice was done to us? How do we keep it from disabling us with anger, fear, resentment, or sorrow? These are some of the scriptures that I like to meditate on when having faced injustice in the past.

Philippians 2:5-8: 

Keep this mental attitude in you that was also in Christ Jesus, who, although he was existing in God’s form, gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God. No, but he emptied himself and took a slave’s form and became human. More than that, when he came as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death, yes, death on a torture stake. 
Remember that Jesus is our example. Nothing we experience can compare to the injustice Jesus experienced.

Hebrews 2:18:

Since he himself has suffered when being put to the test, he is able to come to the aid of those who are being put to the test.
Remember that Jehovah fully understands our pain. And Jesus been in our shoes and knows how we feel. They can fully sympathize and fully comfort us.

Romans 12:21:

Do not let yourself be conquered by the evil, but keep conquering the evil with the good.
Don’t let injustice enslave you. Instead overcome injustice by showing goodness to others, even to your offenders. This is perhaps the hardest principle in this list, but it’s truly is a key to freedom.

Colossians 3:15, 16:

Also, let the peace of the Christ rule in your hearts, for you were called to that peace in one body. And show yourselves thankful. Let the word of the Christ reside in you richly in all wisdom. Keep on teaching and encouraging one another with psalms, praises to God, spiritual songs sung with gratitude, singing in your hearts to Jehovah.
Find extra time with Jehovah, His Word, and Christian fellowship so God’s Word overpowers the words of your injustice.

Romans 8:28: 

We know that God makes all his works cooperate together for the good of those who love God, those who are the ones called according to his purpose.
Ask God how He wants to work this injustice for your good and the good of others.

Whatever it takes to recover from injustice, we can be sure that Jehovah knows how to help us recover. And he is certain to undo any injustice we may have suffered in this evil system of things.

  5. Jehovah gives us exactly what we need at the right time. Just as a doctor gives us the right prescription, however we MUST go to him with our complain. Well we go to Jehovah in prayer and he will guide us to the right medicine. The BIBLE is our proscription. And he will show us exactly where to go to find the correct dose.
