“For behold, they have set an ambush for my life; fierce men launch an attack against me, not for my transgression nor for my sin, O Lord, for no guilt of mine, they run and set themselves against me.” (Psalm 59:3-4)
We often pay the recompense for our own sin in this world although forgiveness is granted to us by grace. There are times though when others will attack with no real provocation and simply accuse and malign. In a world of wickedness, these things do happen. The Lord knows. Look to the Lord who knows all things and be comforted by His grace to persevere in every time of trial.
Lord, as a sinner, I want revenge when it is by no fault of mine that I am being persecuted. Grant that I would rest in Your grace and realize that You alone are able to handle every injustice, for You alone are able to discern what is right and fitting in every circumstance, Lead my heart to turn to You at all times and know that only in You can I find true peace that surpasses all understanding.
Lord Jesus, You have experienced the rebellion of the wicked first hand and know the false accusations that were raised against You. In Your compassion and by Your understanding, lead me through these times of trial that will come that I may keep my eyes upon You and trust in Your never-failing support through all the tribulations of this world. Lead me through Your grace dear Jesus. Amen.
