The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

Devotional for August 21

"Shall not God avenge His own elect?" Luke 18:7

THE Lord's people are often oppressed, they are tempted to be revengeful, but our God says, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay." Under man's wrath, remember you are the objects of the Lord's love; when men oppress you, rest assured that God will befriend you. Carry your case to Him, spread the whole of the matter before Him; plead with Him, and then rest assured that He will appear for you. The master will interfere for a servant he values; the parent for the child he loves; and the husband for the bride he has chosen: "And shall not God avenge His own elect? I tell you He will avenge them speedily." Cry to Him day and night, look to no other quarter for relief or deliverance; never encourage any unholy feelings, but pray for grace to imitate your insulted, persecuted, and crucified Lord. Consider Him who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest ye be weary and faint in your minds. He will tread all your enemies under His feet shortly. He is able to avenge you, and His word is passed.

Shall we distrust our faithful God
Or question His almighty power,
Because He doth not our desires
Accomplish in a little hour?
He will avenge His own elect,
And evermore His saints protect.
