“God is absolutely just, and only He can ensure that justice is fully carried out. If we are impatient and seek revenge, we presume that we are wiser than God, and we reveal a blatant lack of trust that God will do the right thing. Only by trusting God’s sovereign wisdom will we be free from our anger and preoccupation toward those who have committed evil. If we refuse to trust God’s justice, we become enslaved to bitterness and anger.”
The Son of God came to set us free (Galatians 5:1).Jesus could have easily been offended by all of mankind. He faced every possible opportunity for offense, and yet He forgave. He was able to take every thought captive even when others treated Him badly. Even though He was bombarded by every lie from Satan, He did not give in. Instead Jesus quoted God’s truth in the face of those lies from the enemy. We must do the same.
Let’s learn to walk carefully. Let’s not fall into the trap of offense. Our just and sovereign God has all wisdom, and we can trust in His perfect justice. If we want to see breakthrough in prayer, we must learn to live without offense. We must learn to trust God to bring about justice in his own way and time.
