This morning I read chapter 6 in Grace Is Greater by Kyle Idleman, Subtitle, God's Plan to Overcome Your Past, Redeem Your Pain, and Rewrite Your Story.
The title of Chapter 6 is, More Prevailing Than Your Vengeance. I can identify with the first section. Summary- The Pastor received a hateful email from someone and he shared it with his Father.
His Father stepped in for him and sent a letter to the hateful person defending is son. The Pastor did not ask his Father to do this for him.
My take on this is we have a heavenly Father, but God uses people to step in and speak up for us.
Lately I have a couple of people in my life who defend me when someone attacks me or is harsh with me. As brothers and sisters in Christ and as fellow leaders we should be willing to support others and come to defense.
Yes, God is our defense, but he also uses people. If we find ourselves standing in relationship with only people who are against us and critical then it is time to find a new circle of support.
