Have you had someone that has wronged you? Do you feel all bitter inside and need to find a release? Let me share with you a way to find peace.
The Bible teaches us in Rom. 12:19-21 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
The scripture also teaches us to forgive others their trespasses as the Lord has forgiven us our trespasses. We read in Ro 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
So, if we forgive that person and let God take care of that person, we can release ourselves of the responsibility we think we have to get back or to get even.
I have been appointed personal representative for an estate. The real estate agent came and we listed the property. She kept having me to sign this and that and I was so glad to have someone I could trust with the job and I did not have to understand it all. That is the way it is with the judgement of others. We can give the job of vengeance to God and that releases us and we can go on and love the person.
Several years ago our son-in-law was killed in an automobile accident. An intoxicated man ran into him with our daughter and 2 grandchildren. At the trial our son-in-law's father read a statement in the court. He said that we as a family grant the man a full and free pardon as the Lord had granted us a full and free pardon. It was his wish that the man would receive Christ as his savior. Even though we were all hurting, forgiving him allows us to have a free conscience and also go on with life without bitterness and vengeance. What a peace instead of that inter cancer of bitterness.
I once heard a song. It tells about two children that had a father that was very mean to them. One of the children lived in peace and the other in bitterness. A person could not understand why the difference, until one day they saw the one child at the grave site sobbing and saying that he forgave his daddy. Then it was understood why that child lived in peace.
Friend, I encourage you to forgive and leave God to take care of the offender. Love as Christ has loves us, even while we were yet sinners.
