Jeremiah 11:18-20

Jeremiah recognizes that he has many earthly enemies who are scheming against him. What he does, admittedly after much complaining, is put his trust in God. He leaves it to God to vindicate him. One of the big mistakes people often make is that they seek to bring about their own vindication. Often, this takes the form of seeking revenge for wrongs done to them. This will only make the problem worse. It’s best to leave the judgment and vengeance to God.

Jeremiah 11:18-20

18 I knew it because the LORD informed me; at that time you, O LORD, showed me their doings. 19 Yet, I, like a trusting lamb led to slaughter, had not realized that they were hatching plots against me: “Let us destroy the tree in its vigor; let us cut him off from the land of the living, so that his name will not be spoken no more.” 20 “But you, O Lord of hosts, O just Judge, searcher of mind and heart, let me witness the vengeance you take on them, for to you I have entrusted my cause!”
