Don’t say, “I will get even for this wrong.” Wait for the Lord to handle the matter.
Proverbs 20:22 NLT

Revenge is so logical until it seems natural. It makes so much sense to get even with the person who mistreated us. It’s logical, but revenge is 100% associated with our flesh (our sinful nature). And nothing good comes from our flesh (Rom. 7:18 KJV).

God’s word is telling us to go against our urges that seem so natural. His word is telling us to let Him handle it. That can be difficult because He may not handle it like we want Him to handle it. We may want them to suffer, but God Who is love and full of compassion, mercy, and grace will handle it differently.

If we’re honest with ourselves, we’ve mistreated people too. Although we’ve mistreated people, God extended His mercy toward us and we didn’t suffer. So why do we think people should suffer because they’ve mistreated us?

We must forgive them and believe God will do whatever He feels is necessary to fight on our behalf, but at the same time, extend love, grace, and mercy towards them in order for them to change their ways.
