Morning Prayer, Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: BACK UP
Father God, help me to be strong enough to turn and walk away when I really want to be vengeful. Amen
Romans 12:19 and Hebrews 10:30-31
"The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury." A few years ago, I read about a dentist in a foreign country whose longtime boyfriend had cheated on her. She was devastated. One would think that breaking off the relationship and moving on would be enough for her but it wasn’t. In fact, shortly after the breakup, he had a dentist appointment with her. Now why in God’s name would he keep that appointment? I would not have kept it. First chance I got, I would have called and canceled it. Whatever the procedure, he had to be put under. He went to sleep with a full mouth of teeth and woke up toothless. Now, you know he was livid. Wouldn’t you be beyond mad? This was a case of her deciding to get vengeance on him for his cheating ways. Well, God says “Vengeance is mine.” That means that no matter what someone does to me, I cannot plot my revenge. That’s hard isn’t it? I’m supposed to sit here and keep my mouth shut and my hands to myself. I hear people talk about how back in the day before they were saved, if you looked at them the wrong way they would cut you or jump on you and give you a good beat down. Isn’t it amazing what Christ in you can do? You remember the time when someone said the wrong thing to you that you were all up in their face. Now, you let God handle it. You don’t go pulling all his teeth or shaving her head. What you do is go on about your business and let God handle be God. Hard to do sometimes, right? I know, but if I am going to say that I’m following You, Lord, I have to back up.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
