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.”
When we step in to avenge our own problems, we are only getting in the way of letting God take care of the problem for us. Do you really believe that you can do a better job of dealing with your enemy than God can? If you defend yourself, then the Lord can’t defend you. Leave it in His hands. God is infinitely capable and exact in working vengeance in His perfect time. Be patient; wait on the Lord and trust in Him. He will keep His promises. Keep moving forward and don’t look back!
