What is just? What does it mean to be just?

Just can have so many different meanings and uses and misuses. Is it a form of that such that is fair, such as justice? Does it mean to be on the verge of something? Or making a statement on how something is merely and simply allowed.

Our modern Christian culture has come to use the word just too much.

“God just do this, just heal this one thing” as if God could either be ordered, contained, or limited. My God is too wild for that. Though my God is a just God, God is not just a god.
