"He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head." Psalm 7:15-16
Have you ever dealt with someone and you find yourself hoping this will happen? Hoping that the trouble they constantly cause for you will come back around and bite them? Hoping that they will "fall into the pit"? Sometimes the people we deal with in this world can be very difficult. They are not all following the Lord - some of them may even unknowingly (or knowingly) be following the devil.
Sometimes when we encounter a very manipulative person, especially when we have to work with them or live with them, the only thing that can help is a message like this one. In it we are told that the trouble will come back to bite them. The violence they serve up to others will land on them.
But it will be in God's timing. It is not for us to determine the judgment a manipulative person will reap one day. That is God's job. And we have to remember when we deal with difficult people, that they too are loved by God.
I think this is something worth praying about. I will be praying that God will help me remember that He loves all His children, not just those that are obedient or are following Him.
In His Grace...
