VENGEANCE BELONGS TO GOD
(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.
Vengeance belongs to the Lord this is what Romans 12:19 says explicitly. The Bible says God is the ultimate judge, and He will bring ultimate vindication and justice. Child of God, I want you to know that evil will not go unpunished. God will surely judge those who don’t want to see your progress. No evil will go unpunished. Just trust God. There is a very good reason why the Bible teaches repeatedly that vengeance belongs to God. The simple reason is because only God is omniscient, that is, knows all.
If you had the power to hurt someone who hurt you, or someone who hurt one of your loved ones, there is the real possibility that you might judge wrongly. If God were to allow us to avenge ourselves, we would go too easy on some people and be too harsh on others. Furthermore, we would be partial and biased toward our friends and loved ones, while tending to be merciless toward strangers and people that we don’t like. In a statement, we would often judge wrongly based upon limited, finite and unreliable knowledge.
Ultimately, the point is all of justice, vengeance, punishment belongs to God. And this is huge as we think about our own lives because we can easily be overcome with feelings of vengeance, wanting a desire for revenge when we are wrong. We can think, “Okay, what do I need to do to make that right? How do I get back at that person?” This is where we need to realize, it is not our duty to revenge, vengeance belongs to God, and He will make all things right, and He will bring about judgment on all who deserve it. I judge that man or woman hampering your success and progress. I summon him or her before the God of vengeance. Let their ways be slippery and let their eyes be blind in Jesus Name, Amen.
Meditation: God is the ultimate judge, and He will bring ultimate vindication and justice, that evil will not go unpunished.
