Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you. Proverbs 20:22 King James Version
Revenge is a stupid never ending circle of pain, destruction and sorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green
I used to be the type of man that you never wanted to cross. Sometimes that meant that when I extracted my revenge for a perceived wrong an innocent would be hurt. Then the shame I felt was far greater that the satisfaction from the revenge.
It took a few years in my infancy walk with Christ to understand that the Lord delivers the best justice. After all who knows the offender better and how to administer truer justice you or Jehovah?
There were two instances when an employer cheated me and here was nothing I could do about it. A few months later boy did He deliver full justice and then some. I did not pray for the revenge nor particularly enjoyed it.
Now when someone does you wrong you are not to pray for fire and brimstone to be heaped upon the offenders heads. Instead pray that the Lord will bring them to repentance and there is resolution.
I believe what Jehovah will deliver you from is the fire and hatred that comes and consumes you when you want revenge.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my deliverer) for delivering me from the vicious destructive cycle of revenge and freeing me to be Your loving child. I adore You in the name of He who did not seek revenge on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
