Psalm 109:4 NLT
“I love them, but they try to destroy me with accusations even as I am praying for them!”
People come in so many shapes and sizes. No two are alike even in identical twins there are at least some differences. It’s the way that God designed it. People though, try to make themselves like each other, and when your not, they get unkind about it. They also get unkind if you are better than they are in the work place or if they “think” at being a wife or mother. It all bowls down to how the other person really “Thinks”. Some people hold you up to an impossible standard like your children sometimes or your husband or boyfriend. Then there are some people that should hold you up, but don’t which is just plain sad.
When you don’t preform up to other people’s standards or in the fashion that they think you should, they tend to “tear you down” and say bad things about you. That is what this passage of Scripture is talking about today. Some people want to destroy you because they “think” you have a better life than they have. Others because you have something they want. Still others because you’ve got something they want. And still others because they want to win, and finally others just to break you and put you down into the ground. It’s not pretty, but it’s the Human Truth – “Everyone out for themselves at any cost to their fellow man.” Of Course this is not God’s Way, “Love your Neighbor as Yourself.” unfortunately.
Satan wants us at each other’s throats and fighting for everything we have tooth and knuckle. He would have us bloody and weak from all our fighting amongst ourselves. That way he could just swoop in and take us easy, without a fight. Satan doesn’t like to fight. He likes to come in the back door like a burglar and kill you from the inside out all nice and quiet. He can’t stand the light of God because Jesus already defeated him.
You see Jesus brought the Satan out into the Light and Defeated him once and for all so we don’t have to be afraid of him anymore. Satan is like a lion without any teeth. All he can do is roar at you. I mean, what’s else is he going to do?…..Gum you to death?..,….LOL 1 Peter 5:8 States it perfectly – NLT “Stay Alert! Watch out for your great enemy the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”
When we find ourselves in these situations and the devil is hard on our cases, All we have to do is turn to God in prayer and He will give us strength to endure anything. I love my Heavenly Father so very much. He has gotten me through some very hard times, and it was all through prayer and obedience. Even if all you can do is say Jesus’s name out loud, that in itself is a mighty prayer because there is power in the name of Jesus!!!!! Jesus has always been there for me and I know that He will always be there for you and get you through too.
Dear Heavenly Father,

Let them know that You are near and that You’ve got things well in hand even if everything around them is spinning out of control at this time. Wrap your strong arms of comfort, peace and joy around them and let them know in their soul that they are truly loved. I humbly ask these things in thy Son’s name, AMEN
