When Slander Comes…

You ever find yourself walking through the mundane routine of life minding your own business and then it’s like bam… bam…and bam again… you can hear these arrows coming from someone’s mouth… in an attempt to pierce your mind and your heart?  You’re engaged in a battle….everyday.  And these arrows come, launched against you at the most inopportune time.   There is something on your mind or a wound in your heart that you are dealing with personally… not really letting anyone know about it, but just trying to cope with it… and it seems that it’s that very thing that has this huge invisible bulls eye on and those arrows hit that very spot.  It’s hard to maintain a defense against these arrows when they come in repetition.  This battle is not against people, although the words come from their mouths. (Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of the dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.) You have an enemy and he has every intent on taking you out.  Don’t get caught up in the mess!  Stand strong… knowing who you are in God.  You are an overcomer.  Repeatedly remind yourself of your identity.  And one more thing, let this encourage you… I love this: Psalm 91:5-6 You will not fear the terror of night, NOR THE ARROW THAT FLIES BY DAY, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.  Forgive those who slander you… it’s not about them anyhow.
