“…when He (Jesus) was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;” – 1Peter 2:23
When Absalom tried to kill his father David when he ran away from him, Shimei started blaspheming David. It was an experience of pocking the sword into the severe injury! But David submitted things to God. And says, “God allows Shimei to abuse him” and adds the evil to the blusher of me was not the utterance, but he says, “For this shame and reviling at me, God will reward me good.” See, the perfect heart of David!
God allows anything Shimei’s blasphemy, heart breaking things, tears of weeping bitter Mara and all things are committed in the feet of God. God will provide the things for good for the sufferings we had endured. What does 1Peter 2:19-20 verses say about the things? “Because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully…you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.” Yes, thus we must follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ is more essential. He was without reviling, while he was reviled by others. When he had undergone persecution, he did not threaten others. He committed to the judgment of God. Yes, when this nature was found in David he was exalted by God.
Dear ones! Yes, we too without argument things and without protecting us and without saying, “God will revenge you” let us be still and wait upon the Lord God. Thus, we are called to follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Yes, He himself committed for suffering. David committed for reviling. In the end both of them were exalted. Let us have them as our model. Be blessed by God.
