GENESIS 12:3 NIV | “I WILL BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS YOU, AND WHOEVER CURSES YOU I WILL CURSE; AND ALL PEOPLES ON EARTH WILL BE BLESSED THROUGH YOU.”
The temptation and pull to respond to your accusers and those who malign you can be very strong. But, don’t fall into the trap. Don’t gratify your accusers. Don’t give substance to their words by responding to what they’ve said. Instead, ignore them and let God fight for you.
Joseph was maligned and falsely accused of attempted rape by Potiphar’s wife. Jeremiah was falsely accused of deserting to the Babylonians and imprisoned as a result. Our Lord Jesus, on the Cross for an offence He didn’t commit said, ‘Lord, forgive them for they know not what they do.’ He did not respond to His accusers.
God has promised to bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. So, ignore your accusers. Don’t bother responding to them and in God’s perfect time, He will fight, win for you and elevate you in their presence. Give God some praise!
