The Supreme Court is the highest court in the United States. If we could expect justice anywhere, it should be before these esteemed justices. Yet they are just human. Their caseload is overwhelming.
Most cases the Court hears are selected by the solicitor general of the Justice Department, who chooses from thousands of potential cases. The staff of the solicitor general has mushroomed in recent years. They file briefs and make appearances in about 150 to 175 cases a year.
But think of how many petitions are denied! There is so much paperwork in the Supreme Court system that detailed rules are applied to the way documents are filed, from the precise wording that must appear on the cover to the length of the brief.
With all these constraints, most cases do not make it to the bench. Perfect justice is therefore not being rendered. It is humanly impossible.
But God does not need a brief to examine a case. He does not run out of time to consider the evidence. No research or investigation is needed in His court---He already knows it all. He knows the motives, thoughts, actions, and purpose for everything done. Our only option is to confess before a holy, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, just God.
Justice is not an external system to which God tries to adhere. He did not have to go to law school to learn how to apply the law. His justice comes out of His inner being and is based on His holiness, truthfulness, and righteousness.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Thank God that Jesus, our Advocate, has already taken our punishment. Therefore, the Father declares us "not guilty." Worship Him today with a grateful heart.

Look at the beauty and intricacies in your corner of the Earth; marvel at the genius of the design. How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being.
Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
