Vengeance belongs to the Lord!
The Lord says not to take revenge but to overcome evil with good and pray that their sin would be forgiven. Still, God knows what is best for the whole situation.
We must keep our heart right and pray justice and mercy. Still vengeance belongs to the Lord!
Rejoice and be Thankful at ALL times
I just want to encourage you to rejoice and thank God for whatever you are now going through. Even though things look bad and feel so uncomfortable going through them know that God is working behind the scenes conforming you into His image.
And not that, only He is using the situation to prevent something that might happen otherwise. That can be when you are in a very impatient situation waiting for things to change, that split second could save your life.
Yes, like in a traffic jam or waiting in line, timing is so important; yes, God’s timing! And situations where you just couldn’t work things out with certain people and you felt like the enemy won the battle; that is not true, the Lord is working in it to preserve your life in some way.
The steps of the righteous are ordered of the Lord and that is even your mistakes that you make are working for your good. Yes, if you are even grieving over a situation just rest and thank God that He is in it somehow blessing you through it all.
You will look back and see God’s hand of grace and blessing working in your life through the hardest times. What the enemy has meant for harm surely God is working it all for your good. Be blessed extremely this day!
We must use wisdom even though we minister with grace and truth. His timing is so important as I am learning the hard way!
But all things work together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His plan and purpose. We all have the freedom to share our opinion on what we may be convicted of, but those who are listening need to be especially careful not to fall into legalism thinking that if they think something is wrong, then it must be.
I came out of a church that controlled each other with peer pressure. Many became not knowing who they truly were, trying to please everyone, because they all had a different opinion. When we hear, we must pray, because what God might not allow one person to do it would be all right for another!
We need to pray for the balance in all things seeking God’s perfect will for our life. That is what faith is all about…. following Jesus and not man, discerning what His path for us to follow!
Abundance of blessings and grace to you!

|Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.|
