Reflections And Lessons:
When people hurt us or take advantage of us, it is an easy trap to feel the urge to pay them back for their sins.
1. A spouse cheats and the other spouse cheats back to show the first spouse just how painful their betrayal felt.
2. You are harassed by a bully and your first instinct is to harass the bully back to show them that they have no power over you.
3. You loan someone money and they fail to pay back. To show them how painful their actions were you decide to take some of their own property as compensation.
The examples for instances where we are tempted to take revenge abound. It’s a weakness of our fleshy bodies.Its very tempting to want to show our oppressors that we have power and might and it’s sadly an easy trap to fall into too. And yet the Bible Verse above is reminding us to put our ego aside and leave it to God. Scripture is encouraging us to trust God and his methods for payback over our own.
And the truth is we can trust God to restore everything taken from us by the enemy.
Whether those things are intangible goods like love, health, joy, laughter, freedom or tangible things like money, property and possessions.
We can trust Jesus because his methods for restoration are much better than ours and his ways are higher than ours. Are you going through the pain of betrayal, hurt, loss and grief?
Do you feel like taking matters into your own hands and avenging? Please don’t. Instead cast all your cares unto Jesus and he will deal with the situation.
