    Does He do that? I mean has anyone ever seen God avenge them in some way?

    When I read The Psalms I place myself in New Covenant rather than Old Covenant mindset.

    Praying for enemies is sort of the opposite of wanting/wishing for them to suffer.


    Enduring Word quote above this Psalm commentary:

    “In this song we see how the very things which assault faith, and threaten to produce despair, may be made the opportunity for praise, in the place and act of worship.” (G. Campbell Morgan)

    I have seen God absolute destroy the lives of those have that attacked me in the past.

    I've also seen those that attacked me in the past seem to prosper without limitation in spite of their evil.

    As my wife says,

    Wife: Jesus, they really hurt me. Destroy them, please.
    Jesus: "Revenge is mine," saith the Lord. This is too big for you, child. Let me carry this one.
    Wife: OK, Jesus, revenge is yours. I can live with that.
    Jesus: Thanks, baby girl. You'll be better off in the long run.
    Wife: OK, Jesus.
    Pause...
    Wife: Hey, Jesus?
    Jesus: Yes, what's up?
    Wife: Revenge is yours, but can I watch?

    Part of our struggle as Christians is the demand for stewardship of our minds and emotions. Having feelings of hurt, anguish, revenge, etc., are a part of the human condition. What we decide to do about those emotions is not. What we decide to do about those emotions is a spiritual issue. We are told to take every thought captive and to subjugate it to the will and authority of our Father.

    Thus, the struggle.

    We are dead men and women walking. We have died to self, and the life that we now live, we live in Jesus.
    Dead men have no right to be avenged. Dead men can't be hurt.

    Having our minds renewed by the washing of the Word is a daily... daily... process.

    Sometimes suffering is the road for them to Jesus.

    Here's a hard prayer to pray for either your loved ones or your enemies.

    "God, do anything that you have to do the them or to me so that they will see and accept you."

    No doubt.
    The narrow path is not always lined with soft plumage, but often briars.

    That makes sense. After all, the road is narrow, and “few find it” for a reason. If it were easy to walk down, I would think more people would take that way than what we actually see.

    I would say it is an uphill narrow path.
