The Hateful And Evil Will Be Repaid:
The ones who hate will be repaid for it by God. We need not take matters into our own hands. God is the judge of all, and what He does ask us to do, is to overcome evil by doing good. Though this is a difficult task,(to do good to those who are evil,) it is one that we must strive to do when we are followers of Christ.
God wasn’t attracted to you and didn’t choose you because you were big and important—the fact is, there was almost nothing to you. He did it out of sheer love, keeping the promise he made to your ancestors. God stepped in and mightily bought you back out of that world of slavery, freed you from the iron grip of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know this: God, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations. But he also pays back those who hate him, pays them the wages of death; he isn’t slow to pay them off—those who hate him, he pays right on time. Deuteronomy 7:9 MSG (This is the Verse of the day on Bible Gateway)
To all my regular followers thank you for stopping by each Thursday for the Challenge Triumphant Thursday: This week will mark the first week without it as I go forward. I want to especially thank Warren Richards https://wcr281.com for faithfully stopping by each and every week and adding to the challenge. I will continue to go forward mainly with nature photos and a Scripture to go with it. When time permits, there may be longer blog posts, and of course there is always room for a poem or two. I welcome you all to go back and read my older post.https://www.redbubble.com/i/t-shirt/Nature-Bursting-With-Natural-Colours-by-lrant999/73105765.1YYVU?asc=u

Leola, I enjoy this post with its inspiring mix of your personal testament, Scripture, and your outstanding photography. There is so much here to remind me of our awesome God.
Thank you Richard. I chose that picture deliberately. Though we don’t see the evil that’s taking place in the picture…it is there. The swan that we see is holding a gosling under the water….The gosling would later die.
Thanks so much for reading Richard!!
Life, pulled my heart offline, for couple weeks. It was a true pleasure, to have your Thursday post, challenge my heart. God’s word is triumphant, within every heart, faithfully willing to engage! Blessings to you, my sister!
Thank you so much Warren, your Scriptures alway were a great addition to the Thursday’s post. Life can get quite busy at times, I certainly know what that is like. Many blessings to you and your family.
