GOODNEWS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 21ST APRIL 2022 (LET IT GO!)
Scripture: Romans 12:19
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
As long as you live, someone will do something to you that you will not like. Whether it is slander, theft, or some form of abuse,
forgiveness is the answer. You may feel as if you are justified to get even but that is not a characteristic of Christ. Unforgiveness is like drinking poison expecting the other person to die. It is just not worth your time or sanity. You cannot hide anything from God. Offense is a decision not an emotion.
I know you instantly feel an emotion when you are offended but you have a choice to reject it. Emotions are not meant to rule you. It seems unfair to not retaliate in some form when you are wronged. The ways of God are not like man. Trust in His Word and do it His way. The peace of God shall overtake you and then you will find yourself praying for that individual. Never rejoice when something bad happens to someone when they have done evil to you. Always walk in the Spirit which to walk in Love. God will reward you when you do it His way.
Anyone who fights you is fighting against God and you know the outcome. Love your enemies and do good to those that hate you (Luke 6: 27). Keep your heart in the right place and remain under God’s protection.
I will not allow unforgiveness overtake me. I am a mature Christian. All of my battles are the Lord’s and He shall avenge my enemies. I am divinely protected in Jesus mighty name!
