“Vindicate me, O Lord, my God, according to your righteousness, and let them not rejoice over me!” Psalms 35:24 ESV
We can be guilty sometimes of expending far too much energy fighting for different things..
- for our rights
- for our opinion to be heard
- for justifying our decisions
- for getting ahead of others
- for protecting ourselves
Walking with God can bring about awkward moments, difficult decisions and maybe cause conflict with those in our world. But here’s what we must do…
Remember to call upon the Lord.
Remember that the Lord is with you, in all things.
Remember you are the Lords.
Inam challenged that instead of trying to work it out for myself I need the cry of ‘vindicate me’ be my shout.
In doing so I am remembering that He will vindicate me. He will clear me of blame or suspicion. He will make things right. He will bring justice if needed. He will reward me for standing in faith.
