He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved. – Ps. 62:2.
When accusations came against Jesus, He answered not a word. He easily could have blown the accusers away, but He said nothing. He is our example. The problem with defending ourselves is that we could never stop. Because we believe our justification is in Him, we let our Lord be our defender. He lives to make intercession for us. Our Lord, who chose not to defend Himself, lives to defend us and He never fails, Hallelujah!
We know satan, our adversary, satan, as the accuser of the brethren. His accusations come to hinder our resting place in the Lord. The stand we take when this type of fiery dart comes our way is our faith in who Jesus is and who we are in Him. There will be times when no one contradicts us openly, but we sense a spiritual confrontation taking place. We must resist by submitting to God, resting in Him with passion and a vision of His glory.
When the Spirit of God leads us, we seek to obey Him, even if we don’t know the details of His plan. We cannot explain to others what they can only understand spiritually. Let’s not waste time trying to defend ourselves, but rest in the Lord, trusting Him to reveal His will, from glory to glory!
