Psalm 86:14 (TPT) God, look at how these arrogant ones have defied me. Like a vicious band of violent men they have tried to kill me. They wouldn’t worry for a moment that they were sinning against you!
Beloved, when you live aligned with Me and walking on the path I have for you while observing My ways, those who criticize you, criticize Me. You don’t need to defend yourself, or try to hide who I have called you to be, for it is both of us they accuse.
Beloved, walk in humility and forgiveness. Allow Me to be the One to come to your defense. Trust Me to know the best way and perfect timing. All you need to do is to keep your heart right, and then leave the rest to Me.
Psalm 86:13-17 (TPT) You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me. You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and you have delivered me from a certain death. God, look at how these arrogant ones have defied me. Like a vicious band of violent men they have tried to kill me. They wouldn’t worry for a moment that they were sinning against you! But Lord, your nurturing love is tender and gentle. You are slow to get angry yet so swift to show your faithful love. You are full of abounding grace and truth. Bring me to your grace-fountain so that your strength becomes mine. Be my hero and come rescue your servant once again! Send me a miraculous sign to show me how much you love me, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed. Don’t they know that you, Lord, are my comforter, the one who comes to help me?
