People hurt people. Unfortunately, that’s a byproduct of having free will. I’ve been deeply hurt over my lifetime, emotionally and physically. I have hurt others. We all have the scars to prove it! As long as we are alive and on this earth, we will continue to be hurt. Sad but true. Even the people who love us, and that we love, will continue to hurt us. We will continue to hurt others. Betrayal is a fact of life. That doesn’t make any of this right; it’s just truth.
”Don’t say, “I will get even for this wrong.” Wait for the Lord to handle the matter.” – Proverbs 20:22 NLT (http://bible.com/116/pro.20.22.NLT)
Oh, but I WANT the revenge…..
I have to wait. I actually want to let God take care of the people who have wronged me (and who I have wronged), because: “It is written, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has known what God has prepared for those who love him.” (Isaiah 64:4) – 1Cor 2:9
God will judge, then He will be with us in the new world. EVERYTHING, EVERYONE will be new… No sorrow. No aches & pains, no disease, no disfigurement, no hunger or thirst. No mosquitoes, no ticks, nothing poisonous. Nothing scratchy or itchy, no ‘fashion police’. No abusers, and no more criminals. No discrimination or judgment for us after the Great White Throne judgment day, where GOD gives the ultimate vengeance to the wrongs we suffer here on earth. (SOOOOOOO thankful Jesus is standing up for me in front of this Judge!!!)
“So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. For we live by believing and not by seeing.” – 2 Corinthians 5:6-7 NLT (http://bible.com/116/2co.5.6-7.NLT)
I am confident in Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I believe in the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. His angels surround us. I am ready – come back, Lord Jesus, come back! Maranatha….
