Topic: Leave Vengeance To God
Bible Text: Jeremiah 18:18-23
Key Verse: “Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me” (Jeremiah 18:19).
MESSAGE: From the text, Jeremiah pleaded his cause before God. The people who hated him had formed an alliance and vowed to publicly discredit him. When Jeremiah heard of it, he prayed to God for justice. He asked God to judge his enemies since his ministry was for their good and profit but they repaid him with evil. He asked God to destroy them in His wrath.
DCLM Daily Manna Devotional Messages: End Time Deceivers
Some so-called Pentecostals shout ‘die! die!’ in prayers in our neighborhoods today. Some take references like our text from the Old Testament to justify their requests for their enemies to die. Others insist the death they meant in their prayers was intended for the spirits behind the problems – but spirits don’t die because they are not mortal.
Under the New Testament economy, the believer is commanded to love all and hate none, including those who despitefully use and persecute us (Matthew 5:44). When we consider God’s vengeance, it’s also important for us to remember 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”.
There will be times in our lives when people mistreat us and we’re tempted to seek revenge. Or, as we see the gross injustice done to millions throughout the world today, we may want to treat the perpetrators with the same measure of evil they have doled out to their victims. The desire for revenge is natural, but it is something we must offer to God, Vengeance is His job, not ours. Yes, we are to “act justly,” and “love mercy”.

When we consider people who are being abused throughout the world today, and the victims of violence and injustice, with those trapped in human trafficking and slavery, we should ask God to bring to justice those who are hurting others for their own advantage and set free those who are oppressed.
Thought for the day: Vengeance is God’s.
