DAILY DEVO...God makes everything right

If you have been wrongly accused or you feel misunderstood, remember that God knows all about it. He not only knows about it but He has the power to make all truth known.

I have discovered that some people just will not listen to reason. No amount of convincing or deal breakers will budge them off of thinking what they think. Some battles are just out of our hands.

We need to let God fight these battles for us. He will expose the finger pointers and the nay Sayers once and for all. Let Him fight this battle for you.

When we suffer, Jesus sympathizes with us, especially when we are falsely accused because He was also falsely accused.

Hebrews 4:15-16 tells us, “For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

I don't know about you, but being misunderstood makes me feel isolated. Like its me against the world, but the Bible clearly gives example after example of how God took something that was meant for bad and turned it around for good:

While Joseph was thrown in prison, he had God’s favor, from the jailor noticing Joseph to Joseph being  put in charge of other prisoners which than led to interpreting dreams for the king.

David, although wrongfully accused of trying to dethrone King Saul, became the king.

And then there was Job. He had lost everything: his wife, his children, his home, his health and his livelihood. He remained faithful and obedient to God, despite his grief and despite the accusations that came his way.

Reading these stories gives me hope and encouragement in such trying times; perhaps you find yourself in a season of being wrongfully accused or misunderstood. May you come boldly to God and rest in His mercy and grace and see that He is bringing something good to you.

Be still and know He is God ...and He will right every wrong.

This is very good advice...and God can even turn it all around for His glory when we give it to him. In Joseph's case, God used him to preserve the nation of Israel!
