The Day is Coming

Malachi 3

For the day is coming, blazing like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble, And the day that is coming will set them on fire, leaving them neither root nor branch, says the Lord of hosts. But for you who fear my name, the sun of justice will arise with healing in its wings; And you will go out leaping like calves from the stall and tread down the wicked; They will become dust under the soles of your feet, on the day when I take action, says the Lord of hosts.

Did you ever experience a time when you wished that someone who had been less than kind to  you would “get what is coming to them”?  That day is coming.

God sees everything that is going on including our reactions to others and how we handle adversity. Our human nature leads us to desire revenge, but that is not what God calls us to do. God calls us to treat others as we want to be treated and to let Him take care of the evildoers and arrogant people. We are to love God and trust Him enough to take care of those people in His own way.

So, the next time one of those people do something to you, just smile. You know that God is in control. Those individuals will be like ” dust under the soles of your feet” and God will lift you above that and into His glory.
