(Kindly check previous post for Part I)
Just as I earlier pointed out, an accuser is after your destiny! To slow you down, demoralise you and make you feel unworthy. Most times because you have a grace they have fallen short of or a height you are but they cannot attain!
The most unfortunate part will be if you don’t know your purpose or the importance of your calling, you will answer to every name calling!!
It is easier to overcome their ‘ministry‘ when you already are sure of who you are, you will quickly identify jealousy, envy,strife etc
I take a few biblical examples:
Jesus was accused so many times while he was on earth. There are so many examples as to how he was accused. He was not even received in His own clan, when He healed, they complained He was healing on sabbath, when He showed love they said He was sitting with unbelievers.
At a point it was His disciples they had issues with, they were accused of not paying tithe, the other time it was about them not fasting…..
Even on the cross, the bad mouth, bad belle people boku!!!
The LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still holds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to ruin him without cause.” Satan answered the LORD and said, “Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life. “However, put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face.”
Isn’t that just harsh? Smh!
The scenario happened between God and the devil, the devil wanted to slander and demerit Job, thank God that God is God,who knows all, still He had to show the devil he was wrong by testing Job.
Joseph: he was accused by his brothers, later by his boss’ wife.
Esther and Modecai were accused by Hamman due to sheer jealousy.
David: due to the lack of self esteem or is it the presence of low self esteem,insecurity and jealousy of Saul who he served sought to kill him.
It’s always safe not to be involved with slanderes and critics,no need to grant them access because they will definitely invite unnecessary test, storm and battles into your life, you might win at last because the truth of now is always the truth of 20yrs and a child if God can never be disadvantaged, it’s just that it all just does not worth it! It’s always ok to avoid war than to prepare for war!!!
The day you realise any of these people in your circle, no matter how close they seem to be, no matter how old the relationship or friendship, they should seize to have access to you, longevity is not in any way legality.
In recent times I have had to carefully choose who and what I listen to, lest I be dragged into the Web of wailers, both in doing, supporting or in being a victim!!! I guard jealously my heart because from there comes the issues of life.
“Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies, I keep your precepts with all my heart. Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law”
As humans, we need to evaluate our life at intervals to shut out toxic relationships. Who is speaking to and about your life matters, who you give access to your information matters, wisdom is profitable to direct.
Do you have encouragers or slanderes?
Always remember you are not always the problem, they could be the problem.
You just keep the good work,walk circumspectly, abstain from all appearances of evil and you will surely be a victor!!
1 Peter 2:12
Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation.
I urge you to terminate quickly every relationship you have with an accuser…..
As for me: I am no longer a slave to fear! I am a child of God!!
