Christian Devotional – July 10, 2013

VERSE:

Jeremiah 11:20–But you, Lord Almighty, who judge righteously and test the heart and mind, let me see your vengeance on them, for to you I have committed my course.

TRUTH:

Because Jeremiah was speaking the truth, the people became angry and plotted to kill him. The Lord allowed Jeremiah to know of their plans. Still, Jeremiah’s response was not to get angry and seek retribution on his own, but to turn the entire matter over to God and allow Him to judge the people and exact His vengeance. When we are wronged, do we seek our own form of vengeance? God is the one who judges righteously and we can confidently turn the situation over to Him.

RESPONSE:

Father, You are the one to judge and exact vengeance. I will turn over everything to You and allow You to do all that You desire and not what I desire. I will commit my ways to You and allow You to guide my course, not anger or anything else.
