Why not? They deserve it, don’t they? After all, they’ve brought it on themselves as a result of their actions. But then, we know that God is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin (Exo 34:6-7).
But we still get to express our pain and the resulting struggles. David said, “Let him rain coals on the wicked; fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup (Psa 11:8). These words are harsh, but they are shrouded in the merciful and gracious love of God.
His love is even forgiving of our anger and inconsistencies of our own lives. He knows we are weak and troubled. His mercy extends to us even when we are unmerciful.
