DAY 5 – Vindicate

Sam Evans

25 September 2021


Isaiah 54:17, NIV
  no weapon forged against you will prevail,
  and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
 and this is their vindication from me,”
  declares the Lord.


We live in a world that often actively seeks to shut down the calling of God in our lives.

Sadly, we can even experience this in our churches. Jealousy, comparison, gossip, and falsehood can be catalysts of much strife in our lives; however, it is very reassuring to know that Jesus experienced all of these things during His time on Earth. People from His hometown did not believe Him, Pharisees and Sadducees (so-called ‘spiritual’ leaders) argued against Him and plotted His death, and others rejected His teachings and lied about Him. Jesus experienced a lot of opposition, but despite this, He rested in the knowledge that His Father was working out a plan that would see Him vindicated and used powerfully to enact a breathtaking victory in the presence of His enemies.

In the end, the ultimate enemy was defeated and the church was birthed. This is why we can press on confidently in our lives despite the accusation or false news that is spread about us. At the end of the day, God will vindicate us, He will stand up and defend us and He will show our enemies that He is working all things together for our good.

Opposition has a way of dampening our spirits, discouraging us, and tempting us to give up and abandon the call of God in our lives. Whatever position you find yourself in today, let the assurance that God will vindicate you, settle and take root into your heart. Dust yourself off and keep going. No weapon formed against you will prosper and every voice raised up against you will be silenced. This is your inheritance.


Dear Jesus,

You are my vindicator. I know You will stand up for me. I know You will fight for me because the battle is Yours. Today I ask for Your strength and power to keep going, to keep believing, and to dust off the negative words and attitudes towards me. Help me keep my focus on You and the prize. I know the plans You have for me are good and I trust in You.
