A reminder for today
Declare me not guilty, O LORD my God, for you give justice. Don't let my enemies laugh about me in my troubles. (Psalm 35:24)
I find myself in a puddle of mud today as I once more have fallen to the misguided and foolish misdirection of a relentless enemy. I can feel how they are mocking me and accusing me. They are laughing at me for I have fallen in their trap and they have intensified their attacks, because I can feel how my mistake now weighs heavily on my shoulders and how they just seem to draw all they can from it.
I feel how David’s words have been on my lips all day and how I so need the Lord to declare me not guilty and give me justice over the enemy and their constant attacks.
Then I remembered that the Lord came for just that reason and no matter how far I have fallen, He will always pull me back and set me on the right path. My journey is not over nor is the fight in me, even when I feel that I have reached my end and that I have no more answers. I know that I do not need to find the answers, because He knows them and when I am accused and criticised by the enemy I must remain focussed on Him. In Him lies my strength and my forgiveness.
I should not listen to the accusations of the enemy. I should humble myself and seek His presence. I should let the power of His Spirit renew me and guide me back on my path and on my journey. I should not give up, but I should keep the faith and stand up once again. Like so many times before…
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
