God Will Repay
April 27, 2023
"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord." Romans 12:19
There are mean people in the world, and there are those who will do everything they can to try to get under our skin. Our enemies will attempt whatever they think they should to move us to a place of wrath. It seems like our enemies know just which buttons to push and when to push them, in an attempt to get us to come out of character and react in a way that would not give God glory. Since we are children of God, we have to remember that all our reactions have meaning. We should not react like those who do not know The Lord. The world may say get me, and I will get you back, but we who know The Lord have to show love in every situation, no matter how difficult. The Scripture reminds us that we should not avenge ourselves, or give place to wrath, but remember vengeance is the Lord's and He will repay. I encourage you today to let God fight your battles for you. God knows just what He is doing and if vengeance is truly His, let God do what He needs to do on your behalf. When people do things to you, and you begin to fight you are letting God know you do not need Him to fight that battle for you, and God will let you fight. However, when things are rough and your enemy is coming against you, and you put it in God's hand then He will fight the battle for you, and remember when God fights He never loses. Yes, people do mean things, yes, you have haters, and yes some of your so called friends turn out to enemies, but you do not have to worry, let God fight for you, and you will have a guaranteed victory. No matter who are what comes against me or the battles I face in my life, I will let God fight them for me, and I know I will have the victory. Since vengeance belongs to God, I know for sure, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for fighting for me and always giving me the victory. Help me to let go and allow you to do what you do best. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
