Insulting Words by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/16/12

“Still I just well up with emotion as I remember all the times growing up that my father used the words, ‘You dummy.’ Because of that, I have not honored my father.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When we think about those who have cursed us with cruel words, it’s natural to justify responding in anger.

But King David modeled a supernatural way to respond. In 2 Samuel we read about a time when someone continually yelled insults and curses at David. As King, he could’ve had the man killed, but his response showed his trust in God’s sovereignty.

David said, “Leave him alone, and let him curse…. It may be that the LORD will look on the wrong done to me, and that the LORD will repay me with good for his cursing today.”

If you’re haunted by words of cursing from your past, would you ask God to give you a view of His sovereignty? He can help you heal through His power.
