    See the birds of the sky, that they don't sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you of much more value than they? Which of you, by being anxious, can add one cubit to the measure of his life? Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies ...

    For the thing which I fear comes on me, That which I am afraid of comes to me. Job 3:25 WEB.As we worked to get the fish hook free of my eyelid, an actual calmness came over me.

Living Right When Wronged

  • Saul sought to pin David to the wall with the spear; but he slipped away out of Saul's presence, and he stuck the spear into the wall. David fled, and escaped that night. 1 Samuel 19:10 WEB.

    King Saul became jealous of his son-in-law David who had become very popular with the people. Completely consumed by rage, he attempted to murder David with a spear, but David evaded him and left the city. King Saul became an evil man. Though he had refused to kill all the Amalekites when the Lord asked him to (1Samuel 15:9), he was fine with wiping out the Lord's priests, their families, and their livestock (1Samuel 22:19).

    Once David literally caught Saul with his trousers down. The men with David in the cave thought it was a gift from God. Here was Saul on a platter, but David spared his life (1Samuel 24:4). Another time David and Abishai crept up on Saul while he was sleeping and took his spear. Abishai wanted to finish the job and pin Saul to the ground, saying, "I won't have to strike him twice" (1Samuel 26:8), but again David spared Saul's life.

    Time after time, David had an opportunity to kill Saul, but he refrained. David was a better man, and because of the calling on his life, he wouldn't stoop to Saul's level. David had killed thousands of men in battle, including the giant Goliath. He certainly wasn't afraid of Saul. David wanted to do the right thing. He wanted to please God, and he wouldn't harm the one that God had anointed as king. Instead, he waited on God to make things right. The day finally came when God removed Saul, and David replaced him as king.

    God sees the things that you are going through, and He has an amazing memory. His delay is not His denial. So don't stoop to your enemies' level. Because of the calling on your life, you need to take the high ground. In time, God will make things right. Two wrongs will never equal right, but right will always be right.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for waking me up this day. Please give me the grace to overcome, the wisdom to make the right decisions, and the strength to stand strong when all the winds blow against me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Amen! Sometimes doing this is a challenge, I must admit, but I do try my best to do the will of God under bad circumstances. "Vengeance is mine, says the Lord," We have to let God take care of the offender and not take matters into our own hands. I know in time God will correct the situation for us in His own timing. We just need to pray and Trust God to act on our behalf.
