It is good and right for the upright to see My vindication on their enemies, for it satisfies justice.
“Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering. Prove me, O Lord, and try me; test my heart and my mind. For thy steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in faithfulness to thee.” Psalms 26:1-3
Some of you have waited many years for this satisfaction. But do you wait for bad things to happen to them; much as if I would rub their nose in the dirt to punish?
No, I say that is not My desire, and it is for you that I wait.
I wait for your heart to turn.
“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.” Proverbs 10:12
I wait for you to love in forgiveness, and understand that it is not My desire to harm, but to build.
My desire is to build you before your enemy, but can I do this when you have bitterness and unforgiveness in your heart?
It is for you I wait.
Learn to love those who don’t love you, for that is who I AM.
Do this and I will lift you to a position that you no longer care what your enemy has done.
Because, for you–
Life has begun!
“The Lord works vindication and justice for all who are oppressed. He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the people of Israel.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger for ever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor requite us according to our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgression from us.
As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.” Psalms 103:6-14
“Do not say, ‘I will repay evil’; wait for the Lord, and he will help you.” Proverbs 20:22
“When a man’s ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Proverbs 16:7
“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows.” Psalms 23:5
