Bad boys, bad boys, what’cha gonna do? What’cha gonna do when they come for you?! Haha yeah I’m being silly but so serious. This song is what I call the reality of the aftermath when we want to get REVENGE! So if you’ve been keeping up with me lately, you know I last spoke about “Choosing to Forgive.” I decided to swallow that lump in my throat (known as pride and anger) and did what God told me is/was the right thing to do and I forgave people. But I still have my moments of feeling like but what about them Lord? How is it fair that they can hurt me and ridicule me and yet suffer no consequences? I’ve had the most random of thoughts and images of how to seek revenge like – when Mary (MoNique- Precious) charged up the chairs after Precious, or Sheila (Jill Scott- Why did I Get Married) saying “I wondered what I would do when I saw you again- if I would cuss you out or stomp you in the street, whoop that @**!,” or doing childish things like block their number or deleting them from social media and become invisible to them- only to prove what point? Is that really revenge? Will it really make me feel any better? And truthfully, no it wouldn’t. When people hurt you, disappoint you, and downright piss you off, the only way to seek revenge against them is to PRAY FOR THEM. To pray for their minds and their hearts.
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for God’s wrath (and His judicial righteousness); for it is written (in Scripture), “Vengeance is Mine, I will Repay,” says the Lord. –Romans 12:19 (AMP)
So yes, the old Yolanda Adams’ song remains true, that the battle is not yours it’s the Lord’s. So quit trying to fight it. Stop worrying about it and let Him do Him. You’ve been doing you long enough, now turn it over to Him. Here’s what God has promised you:
No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This (peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition) is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. – Isaiah 54:17
God is telling you to trust Him, they will not prosper! So ladies before you try going after those that wronged you with threats, fists, and/or fire – first take a moment to stop and pray, so that God can speak to your situation. You don’t want the authorities coming after you!
