It’s taken me a long time to get to Days 13 and 14. I think it’s human nature to want to hurt someone that’s hurt you. For day 13 I’m thankful to have the weight of vengeance lifted. I don’t want someone to suffer like I’ve suffered. The Bible says in 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.” Yowsers! That makes me pray for them even more. I’m The Kings daughter, I would not wish that wrath on anyone. Think about it, what would you do if someone hurt your child? Now read that verse again and imagine that being you and God is avenging the wrong against you. Woe to the person who comes against a Kings kid.
Day 14 goes hand in hand with it. You must forgive as you have been forgiven. Ephesians 4:32 says, “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Just as you should not seek vengeance, you should forgive and let it go. Holding onto it really hurts you more anyways and if Jesus died on a cross to forgive everyone of us the least we can we can offer is forgiveness. I don’t have to walk back into that same situation that hurt me, but I can forgive the person. I can even pray for them and then let it go. Seeking vengeance and holding on to something that needs to be forgiving causes a wound in you and it’s not worth it. Let your Heavenly Father heal those sores and you will be a happier person. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal #11.13.18 #11.14.18
