Enrich Your Soul: The Lord Knows Your Innocence

The wicked lie in wait for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and seek to put them to death.
The Lord will not leave them in their hands, or [suffer them to] condemn them when they are judged.
(Ps 37:32-33, AMP)

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]any are the plots against the righteous. Many are the false accusations that are aimed at bringing them down. Many people brutally and ruthlessly vie for the blood of the uncompromisingly righteous.  The pillows of the righteous are wet with tears of grief. They are wondering, “Why are all these lies spoken against me? How can I prove my innocence? My reputation is being ruined, yet it took me a very long time to build it up but just a single word spoken in micro-seconds has ruined all my reputation. Who will ever believe me again? Who will ever believe in my uprightness?”

You have a Bible character that went through what you are going through. He endured the consequences of all the false accusations yet he did not leave his position (Eccl 10:4). Even after he had interpreted the dreams of the king’s servants he asked that he be remembered when one of them resumed his duties. He failed to remember him because it wasn’t yet time. In the fullness of time, God did come through for him in a special way. He will eventually come through for you if you wait patiently for Him (Ps 37:7a).

He has said vengeance is His. Persuade yourself to sit back and wait on God’s due time to move on your behalf. He has said the plans that He has for you are not meant to kill you. He has good plans for you. He has promised that all things work together for good to those that are called by His purpose. It is not your responsibility to try to prove to everyone how innocent you are and how untrue the accusations about you are. When nobody believes in you and when everyone is disappointed in you, be assured God believes in you and He has proof of your innocence. Be assured He is getting ready to prove your innocence, uprightness and righteousness. Just be a little more patient. Exhibit the fruit of the Spirit which is patience and longsuffering. He will eventually snatch you out of the fowler’s snare. It shall be eventually well with you for you are His righteousness and He has promised, the righteous will not be put to shame.
