“The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet” (Nahum 1:3).
Curtis spoke quietly to his wife saying, “My dear, we need to remember what we read a couple of nights ago in our devotions. The Lord is slow to anger. We both can be very glad of that. Remember also that the Word of God tells us of His great power. But what I especially need to remember is that the Lord will not at all acquit the wicked.” His wife wiped a tear from her eye as she responded, “What they did to you at your work is nothing short of being wicked. How dare they treat you this way?” Curtis was mistreated in ways that could be tried in civil court, but Curtis would have none of it. They together committed the situation to the Lord. Two days later he was shocked to hear that the person who led the cause to demote Curtis had suddenly resigned. His affair with a fellow worker had been discovered, and the supervisor fired him. Guess who was reinstated at the current job and then immediately promoted to supervisor?
For today: God doesn’t always work so quickly. But be assured He will not at all acquit the wicked even though He is slow to anger!
