Falsely Accused

  • Has anyone accused you of committing an act for which you had no guilt?
  • Has anyone falsely witnessed against you?
  • Have you been a victim of a lie?

If you have,

  • Did you defend yourself?
  • Did you get angry?
  • Did you retaliate?
  • Did you ask God to forgive them?
  • Did you pray for God to intervene and fix the situation?
  • Did you let God have control?

Hopefully, you asked God to forgive them, intervene and fix the situation, and allowed him to have control.

I have been in that situation, and at different times in my life, I have done all of the above. However, when I allowed God to have control, the situation was fixed by him. Why? Because I prayed to him to handle it, I waited for him to take care of it, and I saw the results. They may have not been immediate, but they were at the right time, his time.

When we ask God to forgive them

Not only, do we need to forgive the person, but we also need to ask God to forgive them. Why? Most people that falsely accuse others do so with intentions to hurt, damage, and humiliate. It is not easy to forgive them, but it is what we are commanded to do. If we ask God to forgive them, he will deal with them in his way. God has a way of teaching lessons that persons can learn from.

By asking God to forgive them, we are saying “God, take a look at this person. Check them out. They need your help. They need your guidance. Please have mercy on them and teach them about your love and understanding.” God knows everything and sees everything, but there is nothing wrong with asking him to notice someone. There is nothing wrong with interceding on their behalf.

Psalm 86

86:5      Certainly O Lord, you are kind  and forgiving,

and show great faithfulness to all who cry out to you.

When we pray for God to intervene and fix the situation

It is very easy to become angry when a person has falsely accused us. It is just as easy to retaliate and give the person a piece of our mind. But, what can we accomplish, besides getting angry? Not much.

However, when we pray for God to intervene and fix the situation, then we have no need to get angry. We put our concern in his hand. We allow him to take over, and he looks for ways to ensure that the situation is corrected.

We pray to God to let him know what happened. He knows our heart. He knows that we have been falsely accused. Who better to defend us than he who knows the truth beyond a reasonable doubt?

Jeremiah

29:12     When you call out to me and come to me in prayer, I will hear your                        prayer.  

29:13     When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to                    you. If you seek me with all your heart and soul, 

29:14     I will make myself available to you, says the Lord.

 When we let God Have Control

After we ask God to forgive the other person, and after we ask him to intervene and fix the situation, we need to let him have full control. We need not intervene. We need not worry.  

When he is control, he will guide any step we take. He will direct any words we say. He will continue to work on what is needed until he declares victory over our accuser. Once he is in control, all we need to do is wait. In his time, he will triumph over our situation.

Deuteronomy

20:4      for the Lord your God goes with you to fight on your behalf against                        your enemies to give you victory.

Do no let your anger be your guide. Do not let pride take over. Do not let revenge be what feeds you.

Seek God on all you do. Seek God on all you want to do. Pray, ask, and wait.

Have faith. Have hope. God will answer. God will guide you. God will take care of you.

Today, tomorrow, and always.

  1. Ms. Felice,

    Beautifully said and interpreted. I guess most everyone has been falsely accused. I think usually it is because they believe they are correct. When they are not, I think it is a quick action and response. I hope the truth will eventually come out and once someone realizes they have falsely accused are they big enough to apologize?
    I think the real question may also be, Have you falsely accused? Again I am sure that most of us have because like I said we think we are correct! Then find we are not. Everyone makes mistakes and really it is more about how we handle our mistakes in a truly remorseful way or not!
    Thanks for being provocative and stimulating so much thought and consideration…..claudy
