My Hero, My Avenger

This is really messed up. I am so heartbroken. I am so hurt and bewildered and astonished and confused. Itís not fair, I donít understand, and this just really stinks.

Recently a situation occurred that has left me crying these words over and over again. As I write, my heart continues to ache and cry out to my Deliverer for peace amidst the storm. I donít understand how the people that are supposed to love me can be so cruel. My comfort is that God does understand and Heís been there. My precious Jesus was rejected in His own home and He, of all people can sympathize with me. He gets it. In fact, He gets it so well that He made a promise for all of humanity. For anyone who has been accused, abused, neglected, or attacked, Jesus made a solemn promise. I will avenge you.

Hereís what it says in Luke 18:6-8

Then the Lord said, ďHear what the unjust judge said. ďAnd shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?Ē

I see an open ended promise here. God promises to avenge us in our time of need but Heís also asking us to have faith in Him. We are called to believe that God will do what He said but it may not necessarily be within our time frame or what we think is an acceptable opportunity. We are simply asked to trust and believe and let Him take care of the details. I find that comforting. I donít have to ask questions, wait for a resolution, or try to fix anything on my own. All I have to do is let go, give it to my Savior, and believe that He is going to take care of it in His time. I think that is an awesome trade. I give Him my anger, despair, pain, and heartache. In return, He gives me strength for today, peace for tomorrow, and hope for the future. Even better, He gives me a promise that He will avenge me. I can do this.

If today you are saying to yourself, ďThis is really messed upĒ, I feel your pain and Iím right there with you. It is messed up. I would challenge you to take a deep breath, give it to God and trust and believe that He will avenge you and make right that which is very wrong. He will fix it. Give Him time and faith and watch and wait for your deliverer. He is closer than you think.
