Do you think God gets angry when others are evil toward us? What is evil? Anything not of God. I think it does make Him angry when people are mean or cruel to His children. His word states, “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 (NIV)
How hard is it for you not to take revenge”? Is it tempting to just say something back? Or talk about the person to someone else? Hello 🙄
The Bible also states that we have inside us, the power that raised Jesus from the dead. “I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 1:19-20 (NLT)
There is an answer when someone hurts us. If we can leave room for God’s wrath and if we trust Him, we can forgive others just as He forgives us.
