Recompense

Isaiah 66:4.
“I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before Mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.”

I am also reminded of Galatians 6:7. ” Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. “

If people want to believe a lie, then God will choose the delusions they want to believe, and will allow their worst fears to come upon them.

Why? Because He’s a petty, spiteful God? Absolutely not. His warnings, pleadings, calling to those who will not answer, have been clear for hundreds of years. Eventually, His patience will come to an end.

  1. I’ve spent 2.5 years being tormented by someone who not only cheated and deceived me, but is now lying and delusional and rewriting history to make himself the victim. It’s a horrible feeling to have put all your trust in someone for 28 years only to find out that he has no integrity, morals, character. All those verses apply to my situation. I have no contact with him at all, and can only hope he gets help. But the job is too big for me. I can’t fix him. Thank you.

      1. Unfortunately, memory remains. But I can tell you that, like any other scar, it will fade with time. But you do need to give yourself time to grieve the loss of your marriage, and I’m so glad you’re seeing someone who is helping you.
