No one likes to be wronged and when we are it can cut very deep.
Adding to this wound is when others choose to share a very different version to others concerning the same event or events.
It’s almost a guarantee that depending on the number of individuals involved this story can and will change numerous times. Told each time from a very limited human perspective which is most often driven by their current emotional state of mind.
Now, not only have you been wronged but the circulation of the various versions of the story causes you even more anguish.The purpose is to make you look or feel worse.
During these times it’s very difficult not to contemplate some sort of revenge.
If for no other reason to make one’s self feel better.
But try and remember;
“Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [Gods] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord”.
Although there can be many sides to a story, God has a side too and it’s always the truth.
Because of this we can take comfort in knowing that we don’t have to take revenge.
What we need to be most concerned with is that our version of the story lines up with God’s version. When God begins to right a wrong the story becomes very clear to those looking from the outside. The closer you have been standing to the truth the more glory God will receive.
God has a very special way of enacting revenge. Ways that are far more effective than we can ever construct. When He rights a wrong everybody will know. Including those who have wronged you.
So don’t be discouraged, angry and mad. God knows the truth of the matter. And in His timing He will make it very plain for all to see.
