Vengeance Belongs To God (Declaration of Truth)

Vengeance belongs to God. He will repay.⁠

This is a Declaration of Truth I say over my life, and how often do I need to remember this truth? How often do you?⁠

So often, when I feel wronged or see someone else being wronged I want vengeance. I want to defend, protect, and most of all repay. But that’s not my role. This statement helps me remember that. ⁠

Truth statements have become one of the key spiritual disciplines that help me replace the enemy’s lies with the Truth of God’s Word. Every one of my declarations is rooted in Scripture: ⁠

Romans 12:19 Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord.⁠

In a cultural climate where we seek revenge in every possible space, including social media, it’s a great reminder that I am commanded to never take revenge. I’ve got to trust that God will deal with it as He sees fit. ⁠

Truth statements like these are much more than self-help or positive affirmations. Truth statements are just that…TRUTH! ⁠

Scripture tells us that the enemy is the father of lies. He uses those lies to distract us, derail us, and destroy us. The only way lies are defeated is by replacing them with Truth.⁠

Vengeance belongs to God. He will repay.⁠

Say it! Believe it! Live it! Vengeance belongs to God. He will repay.⁠
