Has Someone Been Lying About You?

Answer me when I call to you,
    O God who declares me innocent.
Free me from my troubles.
    Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
Psalm 4:1

 

Have you ever been falsely accused?  Maybe someone questioned your motive or just outright called you a liar.  You can’t win in those situations.  You can yell out the truth of your innocence until you are blue in the face but they will still continue to tell people you are guilty and people will still believe them!  Instead of taking to Facebook to argue your defense, meditate on this line scripture from verse one of Psalms chapter four:

O God who declares me innocent

God knows the truth.  If you are innocent, He knows that and He declares your innocence.  Rest in that.  You can’t stop people from lying about you but you can be confident that they will not be able to lie to God about you.
