Psalm 18:47 It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
When I was a little boy, I remember those days when something would go terribly wrong with one of my friends and I was not happy, I would run home to tell my mom or dad. I could count on them. No matter the situation, they always would somehow take care of it. When I ran in the house squalling, I was sure I was right and whomever I was upset with that day was wrong. Nevertheless, right, (or maybe occasionally wrong,) I would often hear these very familiar words, “I told you do not go there or not to do that in the first place, why won’t you listen?”
Those words still ring in my ears today as I now find myself often running to God with many problems with which I am sure I am right. However, in my heart I hear His voice saying, “I told you do not go there or not to do that in the first place, why won’t you listen?”
The avenging of the Lord is always right. He takes care of me. He watches out for me. Even if it means reminding me that He had warned me that this would happen. I have found that sometimes my greatest problem in the whole wide world… is me! I have also come to know that my greatest friend and ally in all the universe is God.
As we move through life, we must never stop running to God. Even if He reminds us, we caused the problem. He always has the right answers for every situation. In addition, He is waiting and ready with love and compassion to guide us with the right answer for our next situation in life too.
