Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mind, I will repay” says the Lord. Romans 12:19
God is very clear about seeking revenge. He tells us to never take revenge but to leave it to Him. God’s promise to us, is that if we trust Him to take care of the matter, He will bring justice to us. It is not easy – it’s a difficult area in all our lives, we’d rather ignore or be polite, but surrendering is difficult. One time this process of surrendering the matter to the Lord to take care of, continued with me for a month and 2 days, but at the end of that time, there was a beautiful, beautiful healing of a relationship…. Let us pray to the Holy Spirit to give His strength to turn to the Lord when we are hurt. (Jane has given us a realistic reflection about revenge! All are guilty. We like our enemies annihilated! But that’s not God’s way. He is in charge, he takes over your enemies. Just be still. Excellent reflection). Cynthia Abegail in behalf of New World).
