Our Father’s Way


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.

  1. Wonderful reminder! His ways are better than our ways!


  2. I really like your blogs and this one ties in with my tomorrow’s post Seventy Times Seven. Thank you for the confirmation because I almost changed my mind.


  3. Great reminder! I am reminded, too, of something I once heard and has helped me and others when wanting justice. When something has been done against us, we want justice. But when we have done a wrong against someone else, including God, we want mercy.

    It is easier to show mercy to those who are sorrowful and wish they could undo the wrong done, but like you said, the Father’s way is to love even our enemies. Thank you, Mr. Dean. (^_^)

    “Instead of God’s blessing, He tells us to leave it be. He will take care of it.” Amen. You are absolutely right, Butch. God bless. And thanks for sharing.


  5. Reblogged this on A Satisfied Spirit and commented:
    I hope you’ll take the time to read this short and powerful post. These words should echo with us throughout our days. We really can’t control when someone wrongs us or when we know they are sinning against God’s Word. As Butch so clearly writes ‘ If we are to believe one scripture, we must believe them all. It is our Father’s way.’ Blessings to all my bloggy friends you are often in my prayers (even though I don’t know you personally).


  6. Amen!


Thank you for your thoughts.
