God is Just. He is consistent, never changing. He is not fickle and will not take the side of the unjust against the just.
God has the best ethics. When we follow Him by Bible reading, prayer and other disciplines of faith, we become more just over time. So we see life around us as God does. We can tell right from wrong, good from evil, and true from false.
So if you are experiencing injustice in life, keep looking to God, talking to Him about the problem and asking Him to solve it. Sometimes it takes perseverance in prayer and fasting to bring about more understanding and solutions.
Yet God is faithful and true to his word. The values of the world are opposite to God's. What the world says is right, good and just is actually wrong, false and unjust. God can't be contradicted. Nor can truth or justice, straightness or integrity. You will stand your trials as long as you stand with God.
So if you experience injustice and it grieves you daily, keep praying and asking God for help. He hears all our prayers and will answer them. He gives insight, and will turn everything to good for you.
Let others around you see that you are a person of God. With integrity that can't be compromised, ethics that are set in God, truth that will stand the test of time and a sense of justice that will be borne out when God acts. Act and think as Jesus would.
Even if the worldly are doing you wrong, entrust the situation to God. With God you have a mighty Being at hand, far greater than Satan, powers, authorities, rulers and people. God will vindicate you if you are being slandered by the world for doing right.
So put all your trust in God, cast your burdens on Him, tell him your view about trials you are facing, and be bold in prayer. Do not be intimidated. God will act in due course.
Keeping perspective is absolutely critical and healthy for us. The world tends to wear us down. Humour helps, some laughter enlivens. The company of friends and family will keep you happy. Being outdoors can be cheering. Remember that our entire earthly lives are temporary and short compared to our heavenly life which is permanent and very long.
