No Weapon Shall Prosper!
Not so very
long ago I had the humiliation of facing a false accusation; it wasn’t the
first time, but this time caused an increasing amount of shame in me. I knew
that it wasn’t a true claim against me, but the mere nature of the accusation I
found embarrassing to say the least. As a matter of fact it even impacted my
job as an advanced EMT as I had to cross the border into Canada from time to
time. At the border I was called into the customs office as the accusation
caused me to get a no contact order of protection against the individual that
falsely accused me. No matter the shame and embarrassment I continued to do my
job and I continued to do open air preaching at campuses in the area. My faith
was in my Lord Jesus Christ, I knew that if I allowed Him to fight for me then
I would be victorious.
actually came when I had to face my accuser in a court of law. A younger man
stepped out from around the corner and called to me to follow him into a small
room. He explained that he was my court appointed representative, but it didn’t
matter because the judge had asked my accuser to provide proof of the
accusation and no proof could be given. I was then called into the judge’s
chambers with my representative and the judge explained what was going on; she
also asked if I wanted to seek any action against the plaintiff for the false
accusation. I responded, “No thank you.” Then the judge dismissed me.
knowing that my God is good and awesome and all powerful; He is my Rock and my
Refuge. My representative read me this verse and I have never forgotten it. In
fact this young lawyer and I are very good friends to this day. Funny thing is,
he had taken the day off and wound up coming to work that day because the
previous night in prayer God told him he was needed the next morning. As for my
accuser, well after she had a psychiatric evaluation done, she lost her job and
her daughter left her and moved in with her father. My accuser lost just about
everything; we still pray for her.
“No weapon that is formed against you
And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.
Victory is ours when the battle is the
