OUR AVENGER

JOEL 3:21

“And I will avenge their blood which I have not avenged, For the LORD dwells in Zion.”

My wife thinks I’m weird because I like all the movies with Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Captain America, etc. I particularly like The Avengers.  Man, when they all come together it’s pretty awesome. They can take on anybody. Their combined strength is incredible.

But as strong as The Avengers are, they are no match for our Avenger. The Lord God avenged Judah for the atrocities that had been done to it. He restored them and continues to protect them generations later. He does the same for us. He is our Avenger. He watches over us and will take care of our enemies.

APPLICATION

Have you felt unprotected? Come to Him. Have you felt like your enemies are all around you? Call on Him. We don’t have to defend ourselves. He is always right there for us. We just have to call out. Jehovah God is still avenging His children. Now, we may never see our enemy suffer, but they will. One day, at judgment, all the enemies of God’s children will pay.

Until then, we have to rely on Him to protect us. He gives us spiritual insight on how to live our lives. As long as we are doing that, we are under the umbrella of His protection. But you need to stay under that umbrella. When we stray and venture outside that ring of protection, we have opened ourselves up to attack. Stay with Him.

I am thankful for His loving arms around me. I know I am safe in my Abba’s arms. He is able to safeguard me from any enemy attack. The only thing that can touch me is what He allows. And if He allows it, it is to make me more like Him. I live with that belief. How about you? Don’t complain and cry out to the Lord every time you run into a difficult situation. Ask Him what He is trying to teach you. Trust your Avenger.

You are my Avenger. I know You are aware of everything that happens in my life. I trust You.
