Touch Not My anointed

As King Saul’s jealousy and envy raged within him concerning his servant David, and the great exploits which he did by the hand of God his one desire was to kill David.  He pursued David all over the land with a desire to rid himself of who he knew would be the next king.  Though David’s life was constantly threatened by the king when he finally got his chance to slay King Saul he chose not to do it, but said to the 400 that traveled with him “The Lord forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, the Lord’s anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the Lord (1 Sam 24:6)”  Thus, he had the right to slay what everybody perceived to be his enemy, he had an opportunity to take his life; however, he allowed the Lord to avenge him.  As Christians we too must understand that we are to never take vengeance into our own hands; we are to never ever attempt to avenge ourselves when dealing with God’s anointed.  It’s been said that the greatest hurt among the body of Christ is (Church Hurt) where somebody who we had great love and respect for in the body of Christ (most often a church leader) said or did something that crushed us and it took us years to get over, and for some, still hadn’t gotten over.  However, even when something like this happens it’s up to us to heal, forgive and allow God to avenge.  Saints of God, when a Christian leader is out of place; when a leader is not doing what he is supposed to do, it will be God who deals with him, and many times the consequences of his actions is more than he wanted to pay.  Child of God, at the end of the day it’s up to those who are Christian to heal, forgive and allow God to do what he does; because he said in (Rom 12 :19) “Vengeance is mine; I will repay saith the Lord.”
