How much do we take from people who push us to that point of complete anger and frustration? Thousand Foot Krutch reminds us of those people that can push our buttons and take us to that place of anger or even rage. Learning how to stand up for ourselves, while maintaining the perspective God wants us to have is no easy task. We aren’t called to be pushovers or to just take injustice. Ephesians 4:26 in the Bible instructs us on this, “When angry, do not sin; do not ever let your wrath (your exasperation, your fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down.”
As Christians, we are instructed to love, forgive and turn the other cheek. When people really cross over that line and hurt us or those we love, it’s difficult to restrain our anger. God does not deal with his enemies gently and we as Christians have spiritual armor that can blow our rivals out of the water so to speak. We do have to remember, vengeance is the Lord’s, not ours. With the right perspective, this should be enough to help us let it go. God will call out our enemies as He did Jonah’s. They have the opportunity to repent and turn to Him but if they don’t, the punishment they receive will be coming from the throne room of justice. So let’s love our neighbors and pray for our enemies if they drive us to that wicked streak. If they insist on pursuing the battle, God will be there to take care of it. The battle is the Lord’s.
