It happens to each of us. We live as humble and “right” as possible and then, to our surprise, we are wronged. How can this happen to us? We find it hard to believe that people can live with an intentional disregard for integrity and have such a non causative (irresponsible) nature. Those not walking in His Spirit and in Faith will do this and when we interact with them we are exposed to their worldly nature. In response, by our own human nature and pride, we take exception to this, experience a sense of disbelief, and often feel like we are…..
Luke 18:7 “And will not God bring about justice for His chosen ones, who cry out to Him day and night?”
Even though our feelings and emotions are stirred up by those who caused us pain, took advantage of us, or wronged us, we are blessed with an understanding of the of the nature of these individuals. The Bible explains, the enemy prowls around like a lion ready to pounce and he will take advantage of others to attack you!
1 Peter 5:8-9 “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”
When we know this and stand firm in our faith, God is faithful to us. He gives us a proper and right understanding, as well, the ability to overcome or a least move past the attack (the intent to inflict pain or suffering from another person) and to understand the of the human nature used against us.
We pray for strength and understanding to move past the feeling and emotion we experience when we are judged or wronged. We pray for the person who judged or wronged us, because we now know the source of the attack, it is the enemy. We must pray for them because, even though they are not aware, they are in the worst situation of suffering possible. Under the influence and control of the enemy.
We cannot address this with our own effort alone, we have to hand this over to the power of God. He will bless us with understanding, and in His time, He brings justice.
Know today that God already has a plan; He already knows the future, and He will bring about justice! Before eternity is through, He will right the wrongs that have been done to us.
Father we release our cares and concerns for situations and peoples behavior that is beyond our control. We trust that You are in control for our good and You are bringing justice to us. Thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in our lives.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen
