God’s righteous judgment works to perfect believers and repay the wicked for their evil deeds. Vindication belongs to God. For the Christian, this comes as a deep relief knowing that one day God will deal with all things perfectly and we are safe in His Son. Conversely, those who deal harshly with His people will one day feel the wrath of His anger. He will make all things right. Let this design remind you that God is the ultimate just who judges all things perfectly and rightly.
“This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering—since indeed God considers it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to grant relief to you who are afflicted as well as to us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.” (2 Thessalonians 1:5-8)
