~ "I'm there, Lord, please send Your grace (THIS is what I was referring to the other day...SMH)..."

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. (Prov 17:22)

It never ceases to amaze me the number of people who still, in fact, do honor and do the bidding of the enemy.  People who go out of their way to be evil...bring destruction and hardship (and sickness) to people who are otherwise "good".  They think they are the masters of their small little world.  They forget that their deeds will not go unpunished (maybe not in this world, because they are of this world) but in the next.  They destroy countless individuals yet NO ONE will stand up for them or themselves simply because they can't "afford" to.

When the Lord tells you to "walk away" - that is when your faith begins to flounder.  That is when all you know to be true of His mercy and grace come into question through the "human factor".  You look for another way, you look for justice in a world that has none.  You reach out to those in power and they put out their hand for money and don't seem to want to tackle the beast and head him off at the path.  They want to wait until he has attacked and taken everything that was once you.  So where do you turn?

David knew where to turn: "Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips." (Ps 17:1) and his words still race across my weary mind from Psalm 121:2 when he said "My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth."  

When you've nothing left to lose, when you've been pushed beyond what is humanly acceptable and no one comes to your aid - you have only one avenue of escape...HIS presence!  Getting even?  Not nearly as rewarding as His divine intervention...He is ALL powerful and will vindicate His children.  If not in this life, then in the next (although in this life would bring a smile to this weary face).  

Go to the place where your heart can rejoice in His promises.  Sit quietly and allow that mercy and grace to flow over you like the rain of a summer's day!  Know that He has good things ahead for you even if you can't see them from where you are right now.  Continue to fight the good fight - the just fight - the honest and truthful fight.  Don't let the enemy win (no matter what form he takes).  Know what you know to be true!  Hang on just a little while longer!!!  His justice is mightier than their sword could ever be!  Believe, know and live His word and His truths and your inheritance will be greater than any victory in this world!  Have FAITH, HIS FAITH!!!  The Jezebel's of this world will pass away into the abyss and you will know joy and peace once more!!!
