Danger and Deliverance

Danger and Deliverance

Hello Friends! Last night I was unable to post due to internet problems. My apologies.

Tonight, like David, I am facing attacks, legal attacks on multiple fronts. All of them are illegitimate and lies, but they must be faced and worked through. One of my renters is harassing me, harassing our town officials to harass me, having his friends post big lies about me on the town website, threatening to turn me into higher authorities, trying to ruin me financially.

What should my reaction be?  Certainly not my natural reaction, which would be anger, fear, retaliation and revenge. Instead I need to think like God. Here are several ways for  me to do this and to respond like Him.
Col 3:13 
 “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”

Mat 5:11,12 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Psa 37:4 
 “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psa 37:5  Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:

Psa 37:6  He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.

Psa 37:7  Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Psa 37:8  Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.

Psa 37:9  For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.”

Psalm 62:5 “My soul find rest in God alone, for my hope comes from Him. He only is my rock, my salvation and my high tower. I will never be shaken” as I stay in the tower.

He makes me lie down in green pastures.” This situation is a green pasture (like the picture below) for me to grow and mature in.

Bottom line? God has a plan, He will lead us through this valley of the shadow of death and out into the light again. As David said in Psalm 43:5,  “Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I WILL YET praise him, my Savior and my God.”

We would appreciate it if you would pray with us for God’s protection, provision and guidance. Pray also for the salvation of this man who is attacking us. May God bless him with eternal life! Steve and Barbara
