When it comes to revenge, God is much better at it than we are. That’s because God looks down from heaven and sees all sides of every issue. He knows what is right and he knows who is wrong. So often our perspective is clouded and our judgment faulty. We see our side and only our side. But God knows all. And he will not forget to avenge the wrongs done to his children.
James Russell Lowell wrote these famous words:
“Truth forever on the scaffold, wrong forever on the throne.
Yet that scaffold sways the future and behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.”
It seems that way today, doesn’t it? Truth on a scaffold, wrong on the throne. The bad guys seem to keep on winning. But it is true—and you can count on it—God stands in the shadows keeping watch above his own.
In the end, God always settles the score.
About Rick Ezell
I am a husband, father, pastor, and writer.
This blog is about shaping character, transforming church, and impacting culture. I believe that if one defines their moments then their moments will determine their character and their character will influence their world.
I write on personal development, church leadership, and our changing culture. I also write about the resources I am developing and the books I am writing.
My goal is to create challenging, relevant, and inspiring content that will help you be a better person, the church be a better parish, and the world a better place. If you are interested in those things, this blog is for you.
I have served the church my entire career as a student minister and senior pastor. I studied at Samford University, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Northern Baptist Theological Seminary (eventually I will get it).
I have written eight books. My most recent ones are Chapter 13: The Excellence of Love and Soul Therapy: The Healing Words of Psalm 23. Both are available as eBooks. I have written over 1000 articles for various local, regional, and national publications.
I have been married to Cindy for thirty-three years. We have one wonderful daughter. We live in Greenville, SC.
In my free time, I enjoy writing, reading, running, tennis, and golf.
