We have a human desire to get even. When we are wronged, we want revenge. We want to take “the law into our own hands.” But this scripture tells us that we are not to do that. We are not to “repay evil with evil.” We are to wait upon The Lord. He will fight our battles. After all, didn’t He say “Vengeance is mine. I will repay”? How is it that at times we do not trust Him to avenge the wrongs done to us. God will not fight any battle that we have chosen to fight ourselves. It is not our place; it is God’s.
And we pray:
Father, I ask You to fight my battles for me. Help me to wait on You and not take matters into my own hands. You are more than capable of avenging me. I thank You for that. Amen.
