Falsely Accused

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- January 17, 2012

Falsely Accused… “The high priest stood up and said to Him, “Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?” But Jesus kept silent.” Matthew 26:62-63a (NASB)

It is hard and hurtful when you are falsely accused. Someone may cast doubt on your character, or type cast your motives in an inaccurate way. People who falsely accuse represent a variety of motivations. Perhaps it fuels a feeling of superiority and power; the desire to control may be all consuming, or they may be on a crusade to clean house. Their worldview is the worse case scenario, and you may be the target of their attacks.

False accusers issue criticism not compliments, problems not solutions, directives not collaboration, and blame not responsibility. If you are the object of false accusations it is imperative you not lower yourself to use similar innuendos and insinuations. By faith you can stay above the fray of false accusations, as their consequences eventually come.

“At the king’s command, the men who had falsely accused Daniel were brought in and thrown into the lions’ den, along with their wives and children. And before they reached the floor of the den, the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.” Daniel 6:24

Jesus understands false accusations, as He was abused mercilessly; but He remained silent and submitted to His Heavenly Father. It is in the heat of unfair questions, or senseless slurs that we remain surrendered to Jesus. The Holy Spirit will help you handle the heat of false accusations. Remain in Christ, and by His power you will keep your cool.

God is at work in a much bigger way than one person’s outlandish agenda. Pray for your accuser, serve and love them for Christ’s sake. They are probably unaware of the harm they are inflicting on themselves and those around them. Value the relationship though you do not feel valued. In prayer and forgiveness you release the feelings of anger and defensiveness. Unjust charges will come when you follow hard after Jesus, so die to your need to be right, and trust God to work out His will—His way—in His time.

“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me” (Matthew 5:11, NASB).

Who is falsely accusing me that I need to love and release to the Lord?

    The Holy Spirit works in wonderful and fresh ways.
    I have a client dispute and false accusations are raging.
    I am on my way to the meeting first thing this morning and believe the client has the potential to be verbally abusive.
    I woke up during the night and used the opportunity to pray over the situation.
    I was waiting the coffee to perk and read this devotion….scrolls delivered by flaming chariots couldn’t have been any more effective!
    Praise God for His Word and comfort.
    Thank you for your ministry.

    I am the business owner of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently trying to broaden my wholesale side of business. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain can help me ! I thought that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd stores. I was really hoping if anybody at all could suggest a reputable site where I can buy CBD Shops Sales Leads I am presently taking a look at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most ideal selection and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
