(Listen to the audio version of this blog at this link.)
We don’t wish evil on even the worst of our enemies. We are to pray for those who misuse us and to do good to them. Jesus has clearly commanded us to love our enemies.
But God is the arm breaker.
“Break the arm of the wicked and evildoer; call his wickedness to account till you find no more” (Psa 10:15).
Although we are to curse no one, their actions bring certain end results. We are not to take revenge, but God is the one who avenges.
Silence is a good response. Find ways to do good to those who speak against you. Then a few years later, you’ll hear how God shows up as the “arm breaker” to call to account the misdeeds of those who do evil.
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap” (Gal 6:7).
Maybe this sounds too harsh. Just don’t take any of this on yourself. Learn to relax, be silent and leave things to God. That’s it.
