God Will Vindicate

But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap (Malachi 3:2).

God will vindicate you for the trials that you have faced and he will repay everyone who has done wrong to you. God is a merciful God of love and peace and He always ready to forgive. He is also a great and terrible God and He loves justice and hates robbery.

Paul said in Galatians, Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap (Galatians 6:7). We do not have to worry about trying to get even with people or try to get back at them for wrongs done to us. Let God handle your abusers, because nothing goes unnoticed by him and no wrong goes unpunished.

Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts (Malachi 3:5).

When God decides to bring judgement we do not have to worry as believers, if our heart is right with God. While others are being judged, we will be rewarded for remaining faithful and walking in the will of the Lord. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not (Malachi 3: 17-18).

God will not hold back anything from them that walk in righteousness. God will bring judgement on the wicked and save those who walk in His will. Stay in his will and purpose and you will find shelter in the storm. Wait on God and let him vindicate.

  1. Sometimes the waiting seems hard when you’re dealing with the hurt and the abusers seem to be moving on living a wonderful life. It is so important to let God not only heal the hurt, but give you His perspective on it. Thank you for the reminder.

  2. Such a timely reassurance, especially when it seems that our personal sufferings are unending and torturous. Even in this current climate of racial tensions and hearing that for 400 years our race has been going through this and you ask God – when, how much longer, why, what did we do to deserve this?
    Worse the oppressor always seem to get away with the oppression inflicted.
    It’s reminders like this that encourages and assures that suffering is not in vain and that we will be vindicated and that no one gets away. It’s not easy, but endurance is key.
    We are indeed peculiar.

  3. Sometimes your flesh wants to help God out—But he doesn’t need our help. He needs our patience and obedience. But time and time again, He’s come to my family’s rescue when we’ve waited.

    Ironically, my daily devotion scripture for today is “And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. “(Luke 18:7-8a NKJV)
