Let's find out
what God says about domestic violence and taking vengeance against
"Vengeance is mine saith the
"for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I
will repay, saith the Lord." (Romans 12:19)
God did not say vengeance is yours. He said vengeance is His.
If you want to be on the receiving end of God's blessings and
favors, you have to truly understand what it means to give it
completely over to the Lord.
not say I'll pay you back for this wrong! Wait for the Lord, and He
will deliver you." (Proverbs
YOU CANNOT GIVE GOD 90% OF
YOUR TRUST AND EXPECT GOD TO BLESS YOU FOR IT. He knows that you will take the remaining 10% that you
still have control of and mess everything back up again! Your
blessings start when you faithfully trust Him
discovered that when we think we are being obedient and have given
it all to the Lord, we really have only given Him part of it.
"See that no
one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other
and to everyone else." (2 Thessalonians
I know most of you will agree with me that
there is too much violence in the world today. We can't even
turn on the T.V. to watch the weather forecast until the news
media gives us our daily dose of family members killing other
family members, or other unbelievable and insane situations
that tragically seem to be the normal news of the day. I don't
envy law enforcement that has to respond everyday to a
domestic violence situation; they're so unpredictable and dangerous
to the officers responding.
"Don't seek vengeance. Don't
bear a grudge; but love your neighbor as yourself, for I am
Jehovah." (Leviticus 19:18)
PRAY FOR OUR
LAW ENFORCEMENT TO BE PROTECTED AND BLESSED!
"Blessed is he who has
regard for the weak; the Lord delivers him in times of trouble. The
Lord will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in
the land and not surrender him to the desires of his foes." (Psalm
I remember years ago,
while I was still in grade school, of my promise that I had made
with God; that if He would help me, that I would help out
all others who God would put in my path. So here I was, a
freshman in high school, walking with a friend of mine around the
block that I lived on. Suddenly you could hear someone screaming and
yelling for help. It seemed like all the neighbors whom were
watching did not want to get involved. You could hear the sickening
sound of the air forcefully being knocked out of the woman's
stomach from the man who was savagely hitting her. All the
while she was screaming, "He's going to kill me!"
In the two different times that I had tried to help two
different women by telling the men to stop, both women literally
turned on me; one of the women told me to mind my own business.
(After he stopped beating on her)
"Never pay back evil for evil. Do
things in such a way that everyone can see you are honest clear
through." (Romans 12:17)
And the other women was even kind
enough to take her middle finger to show me that I was
number one in her book, making the man who just moments ago who was
beating her senseless like a rag doll feel like he should be
rewarded with a trophy for "Citizen of the year."
And in the two different times
after getting involved to help the woman, they would then smile
and take the man by the hand and walk back into the house, even
though I had ring-side seats to watch the next freak
show. I was not going to stick around to see the beginning of
"God blesses those who are
merciful, for they will be shown mercy" (Matthew
PARENT'S PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO FIX THEIR CHILD'S BROKEN
If you ever have to call the police for help,
whether you are the man or the woman, and they have to make a
judgment call to take your sweetheart to jail, don't turn on the
police. Remember, you called them for help.
You can sort this
dramatic event out later. Trying to obstruct justice will only
escalate the matter into a more violent situation, just
like the domestic dispute turned on me, and I was just a
high school kid trying to be helpful. Police have been stabbed, shot
and killed by the very person who called them for help because
the police had no choice but to arrest the person who was physically
abusing them in the first place.
Satan is hoping
that you react with anger, bitterness and hate to either your
sweetheart or to the police officer so that both of you now end up in jail
or someone gets hurt or killed.
God wants you to
turn to Him and pray that everyone's heart is filled with love,
peace, and the clarity of mind to understand that the most
important thing right now is the welfare of your children. God wants
you to understand this truth. As terrible as things may seem right
now in your life, it is more important for you to know "how you
react to what is happening to you right now is far more important to
your children and the police officers who are trying to help you
"An eye for an eye leaves the whole world
blind." - Mahatma Ghandi
By the way that
you react, you have the choice and the power
to bring peace and tranquillity to your
children. Who better than yourself as their loving
parent is capable of comforting and quieting the
fears that are causing such heart ache in their dramatizing
little hearts? Who better than you is able to dry and stop the
tears that are streaming down your precious child's
face? Your child needs you to understand that's how they
feel right now.
And they really
need you to fix their broken hearts from this very dramatic time in
their young lives. They need to hear you say everything is going to
be all right and mean it. That is your priority and purpose in
your life as their mother or father. Your purpose as a parent is to
fix your broken home by first fixing your child's broken heart. The
life changing lesson that you are setting as an example to your
loved ones will help stop the curse of family violence being passed
down from generation to generation.
Trust in God and
give it all to Him so that he can turn this into a blessing each and
"for I am to cast all my
cares upon Him." (1 Peter 5: 7)
ABOUT GLORIFYING SATAN!
"Don't repay evil for evil. Don't snap back at
those who say unkind things about you Instead, pray for God's help
for them, for we are to be kind to others, and God will bless us for
it." (1 Peter 3:9)
If you are in a domestic dispute, as millions
of people have been in, it is not about reacting back with
violence to a family member or loved one and glorifying Satan by
acting out with vengeance and hate, resulting into further
retaliation and losing our freedom in society and depriving our
loved ones the benefit of our love and wisdom. It's about stopping
the curse of violence that is in your life right now and glorifying
It's about giving
it completely over to God to deal with. It is not about vengeance
God to shape their lives to be a blessing to Him and to you.
"God will humble
your enemy before you and make them a step stool beneath your
"And I will execute great
vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I
am Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon them." (Ezekiel
That's why I love God so much;
He's the real deal! He's the only thing in this world that will
never let us down. He is the same yesterday, today, and
"Jesus Christ the same
yesterday, and today, and forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
When he says
don't judge or be judged, he will bring us down each and every
time to a place of total humility. And this is the cool part: we
think we have a reason to judge instead of to show love.
Then we are on the receiving end of God's judgment and nobody
does it better than God. Nobody!
"Lord God, To whom vengeance
belongs, let your glory shine out. Arise and judge the earth;
sentence the proud to the penalties they deserve." (Psalms 94:
Do not rejoice when God
takes his vengeance on the enemy!
To stay in God's
favor, He warns us not to have an unforgiving heart, as well as
for us not to rejoice over our enemies when they fall. Or He will
take away His wrath from them.
when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when
he stumbleth: Lest the Lord see it, and it displease him and he
turn away his wrath from him." (Proverbs 24:17-18)
Our destiny is shaped
by the choices that we make today
"So lets learn to stay
blessed and God will do the rest!"
"Remain at rest and hold our peace, the battle is
the Lords." (Exodus 14:14)
