God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

Matt 5:10-12, blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake. Rejoice and be exceeding glad for great is reward in heaven for so persecuted they the prophets which ere before you…

1 Cor 4:12-13, …and labor working with our hands being reviled we bless and being persecuted we suffer it, being defamed we entreat we are made as the filth of this world and the off scourge of all things unto this day.

2 Cor 4:8-9, we are troubled on every side yet not distressed we are perplexed but not in despair, persecuted but not forsaken, cast down but not destroyed.

2 Pet 2:13, nevertheless we according to His promise look for new heavens and new earth wherein dwells righteousness

Rev 21:1-5, and I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away, and there was no more sea. And I john saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, behold the tabernacle of God is with men and he will dwell with them and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away. He that sat upon the throne said, Behold I make all things new and He said unto me Write for these words are true and faithful

When the devil gets you down, get on your knees and look up. Pray for those that despise you and reject you. Bless those that curse you and do good to those that do you evil. The devil will try to get you to play on his terms saying get even and by God’s wrath, render a tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye, but follow after the ways of God, for He hath said, vengeance is mine I will repay. How do you know if you are fighting against God by following your imagination that you are God instrument for wrath? For the very person you strike back maybe the someone God will lead to His Son through your prayer and works of righteousness. The wisdom of this world is to fight back but God has said to not grow weary in well doing. Put your eyes on Heaven above and make yourself fit for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ by following His words that make you wise unto salvation and a fool unto this world and its wisdom. We are not of this world and we must act in accordance to being citizens in the Kingdom of God.

Father, please be our vindication and vengeance in Truth and Spirit, in Jesus of Nazareth’s name amen.
