Some of you might really feel like David, declaring:
“But “they” are glad now that I am in difficulty (they are cheering my demise) they gleefully join collectively against me (they by no means wanted me to succeed). I am attacked by individuals . . . (no one ever does suitable by me) they slander me constantly (I am embarrassed). They mock me and contact me names they snarl at me.” (Psalm 35:15-16)
Perhaps you really feel taken benefit of, sad, lied about, mocked, persecuted, slandered, battered, misunderstood or bruised. You are saying, “I didn’t do incorrect. I’ve sought to deal with issues rightly. I’ve been faithful.”
If that is you, God highlighted Psalm 35 I think there is relief for you these days. . .
. . for the reason that there was a man who understood your plight. David. David admitted truth, his hardship. But, he didn’t sulk in it, He lifted it up to meet the mightiness of God.
How lengthy, O Lord, will you appear on and do practically nothing?
“Rescue me from their fierce attacks….
O Lord, you know all about this.
Do not keep silent.
Do not abandon me now, O Lord.
Wake up! Rise to my defense!
Take up my case, my God and my Lord.” (Psalm 35:17, 22-23)
Take up my case, David stated.
Only God owns – your case. If God owns you, He most surely owns your case. (1 Pet. two:9). God fights and wins. If the battle belongs to the Lord (two Chron. 20:15), the approaches by way of it surely belong to Him. God brings victory by way of Christ Jesus. In light of His wonder and grace, Jesus WAS and IS and IS to COME, victorious.
What if you had been to let Jesus reign in complete in the center of your situation? What would fresh surrender appear like? The enemy has no grounds to fight you when you have currently provided up.
Then, the King of Glory comes to fight your case. Certain, He might transform your view along the way and shuffle you about a bit on the inside, but it is all about beauty. You are developing in it. You are studying. You are discovering the joy of true really like.
With this, might I encourage you? It is significantly less about your words, what you did, how you are observed, what individuals say about you, how “they” must have approached issues differently. . .
As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will by no means be place to shame.” (Ro. 10:11)
Let it go — to let God fight your bring about. And He will. And when God fights for you, He wins — even if you have to fight to unclench your hand a tiny along the way.
