Vindication is the story of my life. Time doesn’t permit me to share all the details of the wrongs I’ve endured from a husband who left me and my daughter behind, to being falsely accused of a crime I did not commit, to being lied on, robbed hundreds of thousands of dollars…
Time doesn’t permit. But God is a Vindicator. Our job is to hold out faith and keep our hearts right. In my devotional, Mornings With the Holy Spirit, I share these words God spoke to my heart in a past season:
“Don’t seek to protect yourself. Father is your Protector. Love seeks not its own. I know it’s difficult not to speak up or act out when people are trampling on your perceived rights. But a humble spirit gives up what it deserves. Humility does not fight for its rights. Take your cue from Jesus, who laid down everything that belonged to Him for your sake. Father vindicated Him and blessed Him with more than He gave away. Father will vindicate you in the same way—but you have to get out of His way. Seek the path of humility, and you will find what you really want.”

Here’s a prayer you can say: Holy Spirit, give me the grace of humility. I choose to lay down my rights and humble myself as Christ did. I know that if I humble myself, You will exalt me over my enemies. Give me a patient spirit so that I will wait on Your vindication with peace.
