“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD. | Isaiah 54:17
I recently did a Facebook live on the Lord’s vindication. This morning, however, I felt led to release a written word about this topic, as well. I believe that vindication is really on God’s heart right now. Here is the definition of the verb, vindicate:
VINDICATE: to free from allegation or blame, to provide justification or defense; to protect from attack or encroachment; defend; deliver.
Many who have continued to maintain their integrity and walk up rightly before the Lord have encountered false accusations and slander. Yet know this: God is just, and as written in Deuteronomy 32:35, “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay!”
Many have grown weary after seemingly facing one attack after another, but the Lord is saying, “Stand still and see my salvation! (Exodus 14:13). I am working and I am shifting things. What has been whispered in secret will soon be shouted from the rooftops (Luke 12:3). The enemy has tried to assassinate your character, and you’ve experienced unjust treatment and even false accusations. However, you will see My hand and My power vindicate you! Truth will be exposed in this hour, and I will bring many things to light. For I am a just God, and I use honest scales and weights (Proverbs 16:11). I am restoring your honor, and even your name, because you have stayed humble and allowed Me to be your defense, even in the midst of extreme testing. Now watch what I will do!
“I am lifting you out of the ash heap and giving you a place of honor (Psalm 113:7). Continue to keep your heart right before Me. Continue to allow Me to be your defense, for I resist the proud but exalt the humble (James 4:6). Even now, I am preparing a table of blessing and feasting for you in the very presence of your enemies (Psalm 23:5). Fear not, My Bride! You are highly favored and protected of Me. I am righting all wrongs, and I am vindicating you,” says the Lord!
Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all (Isaiah 41:12).
