When Someone Hurts You


Isaiah 53:7

English Standard Version (ESV)
“He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
    (A)yet he opened not his mouth;
(B)like a (C)lamb that is led to the slaughter,
    and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
    so he opened not his mouth.” (BibleGateway.com)
When someone hurts you horribly, do you lash out with venom or do you remain silent in love? If someone has hurt you deeply, don’t ask yourself this question. Ask God. Does He want you to respond to the person, or does He want you to deny yourself and reflect His love to a lost and dying world?

Sometimes God wants us to respond to the person, and of course He wants us to respond in love. But sometimes He desires for us to remain silent, merely allowing His light and mercy and forgiveness to shine through us. 

Ask Him.
