Dealing With Your Accusers
Dealing With Your Accusers
Some call them a wolf in sheep’s clothing, an accuser, or in newer terms a HATER. A diamond has to endure so many things while being developed and dealing with those that mean you no go is one of them. An accuser can come in many ways. An accuser could the person that talks falsely about you. The person who lies to try to lessen your credibility and challenge your integrity; or an accuser can be someone who has a truth about you and although you have worked to change your life they bring up old truths to challenge the integrity of the person you are now. In both cases these individuals are people who are coming against you to try and bring you down.
This situation is not uncommon for a diamond when they are being developed. The reason things come against you is to stunt your growth. Growth means progress. Growth means you are moving forward. Growth means you are learning and growth means you are moving on. This is where the problem lies, you are moving on. You are no longer the same person and the people around you see that you are no longer the same. Your communication, attitude, walk, the way you dress changes. You are blossoming into the woman that God has called you to be. When this growth takes place not everyone around you will celebrate your growth. In fact there will be people assigned to assassinate your growth. You have to stand firm and know that if you keep moving that you will have the victory. You have to know that you are not alone and God is with you in everything that you do. Isaiah 54:17 says, No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord. This is the time that you stand on your promises and you push forward knowing that everything that has been set against you cannot prevail. That person on your job, your friend, your own family, whoever it is coming to take away what God is doing will not succeed. What God says will be, it will be.
Do not be put off by your “HATERS” or accusers it is all a part of the process. You have to be willing to go forward. Know that your heavenly father has your back and you will come out on the other side a beautiful polished diamond being put on display for the glory of God!
