Many times we have a desire to defend ourselves when others are committed to slandering our name. We want to shout it to the rooftop, “That’s not who I am!”
Over the years, I have been faced with numerous situations of wanting to defend for myself because I knew I was innocent. Even in times like this, I have cried many tears. However, I remained in a posture of humiity by allowing the Lord to fight my battles for me.
One thing I have learned, is that God is more better at vindicating than any of us can ever be. We have to allow the Lord to fix whatever situation we find ourselves wanting to come to our own defense.
What many do not understand is when we slander and make up lies against a person to assassinate ones character for whatever reason, we find ourselves in hot water with God. The sad thing in society and more sadly in the Body of Believers is we believe a lie quicker than we believe the truth about someone. We will go to great lengths to protect a lie than to expose it for what really is.
We also must understand, when lies are being told on a person, then they must be carrying truth that all need to hear to receive deliverance. Most of the time, they are the very ones that are carriers of solutions to the problems many are having today. The problem solvers are the ones being used by God to SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT to release TRUTH and many do not want this to happen because they want to continue what they are doing in the dark.
I believe in this season, God is vindicating His people so that we will go forth in TRUTH and giving TRUTH!
When we take a look at scripture how Jesus took the humility road on the cross by saying, “Father, forgive them, for the know not what they do.” Jesus could have called legions of angels to come to His rescue, but He saw the greater plan of why He was sent. And that was to redeem mankind.
KEY…Knowing your purpose and the greater outcome will keep you in a posture of humility.
It is in our silence, the greater plan is revealed and if we go around defending ourselves, we will not see the greater plan therefore causing it to be delayed.
Understand, God’s plan is greater than any attack of lies, character assassination, slander, or gossip. God has already made the way of escape when we are tempted to defend for ourselves. Remember God sees all and He know all! He know when we are innocent. He is fully aware of the matters of our heart. He is also aware of all of those that are doing wrong as well.
So, if you are weary about whether, if, or when will God vindicate, KNOW, HE WILL COME THROUGH JUST FOR YOU!
Just stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. For it is the Lord that is fighting for you!
*Do not avenge yourselves, beloved; instead give place to wrath, for it has been written: Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
*For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that wll not be made known and brought to light.
*Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them, because they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you will see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”Exodus 14:13;14
