Threats and Accusations
“You will be protected from the lash of the tongue, and need not fear when destruction comes.” Job 5:21 (NIV)
Men may talk evil of you and lie about you, but their threats and accusations sow their own destruction. Sinful men may bear down on a righteous man with hurtful words and harmful weapons but their temporal power can not prevent God’s wrath as He protects and avenges His saints. When the tongue of the wicked assaults, take refuge in the Lord who upholds you.
Men who resort to threatening, accusing, and harming as their means of expressing disagreement are merely showing their disdain for God and His laws, but know that He sees the truth and He will vindicate you.
Let’s pray today to take solace in the Lord, even when others talk and act against us.
