Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
Romans 12:19 NKJV
Vengeance is a strong word and it is a word that God does not want us to practice. There-in is the rub. Oh, how we want to get even or make things right in this life. It only seems fair and just to pay back a wrong to us. It’s only fair…It’s only fair…It’s only….
Time echoes with the plea of justice. We want justice. We want to pay back for the wrong done to us…to others. We want satisfaction for our situation.
Instead of God’s blessing, He tells us to leave it be. He will take care of it. He reminds us to love one another…to love our enemies…
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. Romans 5:44
God’s ways are not our ways as we walk in and function in this human, carnal flesh. We must find that higher mountain, that greater place where we can reflect God’s ways. If we are to believe one scripture, we must believe them all. It is our Father’s way.
