“For we have found this man a plague, a creator of dissension among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ring leader of the sect of the Nazarenes.”  Acts 24:5 NKJV
“He even tried to profane the temple, and we seized him, and wanted to judge him according to our law.”  Acts 24:6 NKJV

After this, Paul cheerfully answered for himself, unafraid of their lies. (Acts 24:10-21)

Thank You, Lord, for being our Judge so that we need not fear lies and accusations made against us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Judge we
come before

has known us
all our years

and no lie
or weapon formed

shall stand up –
we need not fear.

God  bless you as you cheerfully come before Him today!

Answering Nothing

“Then Pilate asked Him again, saying, ‘Do You answer nothing? See how many things they testify against You?”  Mark 15:4

“But Jesus still answered nothing, so that Pilate marveled.” Mark 15:5

Lies and accusations can steal our peace, time and energy.

Thank You, Lord, for being the truth we can respond to. And here’s a simple poem . . .

So many lies and accusations

are spoken and inferred

but I don’t have to worry

or give back a single word

 

for I have a Good Shepherd

who speaks Truth to me each day

to Him I will respond

listen and obey.

God bless you as He speaks Truth to you today!

Of Complaints and Such

“When he had come, the Jews who had come down from Jerusalem stood about and laid many serious complaints against Paul, which they could not prove . . .” Acts 25:7

The enemy lays out some serious complaints against me each day.

Lord, I am so thankful that Satan’s accusations have all been forgiven me and washed away by Your blood. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Back At Ya

Much is said
as accusations

attempts to take
each believer out

tossed like hand grenades
that Jesus catches

diffusing bombs
of fear and doubt.
