Today’s reading: Psalms 91:1
Vengeance belongs to Yahweh
We read in Psalms 94:1:
O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongs—
O God, to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth!
The natural response of people when they are cheated, wronged, and hurt is to take revenge. They want to get even and make sure that they are not taken advantage of.
As a result, they take it upon themselves to also hurt others as much as they hurt them. They want to make sure that those who have offended them would feel the same, if not more pain, discomfort, and inconvenience than what they have felt.
However, the Bible tells us that vengeance belongs to Yahweh. The God of justice will repay the evil that has been done to us.
There are a lot of benefits in trusting Yahweh that He will do justice. First, it frees us from the heavy burden of avenging ourselves. Since we know that vengeance belongs to God, we can be at rest knowing that justice is served by God, Himself. We don’t need to burn in anger and resentment. We can simply let God and let God.
Another important realization from this verse is the reality of God’s vengeance and justice. In this world, we know how justice is bought. Most often than not, justice is not served and only those who have money are the ones who can influence the outcome of a case.
However, as Christians, we can always go to God, plead for His mercy, and pray for His justice.
As the psalmist mentioned, “Shine forth!” This means that we are looking at God’s power and glory to manifest because once He does, He brings justice with Him.
It’s wonderful to know that vengeance belongs to the Almighty. He is the One who knows and sees everything. He is not just capable of serving justice, but also He will surely serve justice.
It is only then right for us to let God take vengeance. In his perfect knowledge, wisdom, and power, He exactly knows how to deliver justice in all fairness.
So, you can rest now. Don’t seek to avenge yourself. You can take on God’s assurance that He will repay whatever evil is done to you.
