Justice-Wednesday Word

Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” Romans 12:19 esv

When things happen we don’t like we get angry. When we get angry we want to get even. Often times we want to get even and ‘fix’ situations that are beyond our control. Often times in ager we can do more damage than good in our efforts to make things right. Anger should never be our motivation. Our feelings should never control us.

God says vengeance is His. Feeling angry about a wrongdoing? Take it to the Lord. Who can get more justice; you or Him? Too often we get mastered by our feelings instead of taking proper control of them. Unchecked feelings take us out of the will of God because we want what we want NOW. But Jesus says, ”Step back. I’ll handle it.” Let Him handle it!
