#23 Rejoice and Let
Continuously updated, this collection of Martha‘s writings is for all in search of true intimacy with Christ.
God lets things be that we oppose. God lets bad things happen with seeming indifference.
Matt. 5:11 ESV
Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on My account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
He will let you be hurt, slandered, defiled and He will appear to let it go on without any answer. And tells you to rejoice and be glad? That is beyond just ‘let it be!’
So we fuss and fret, fume and…doubt.
I have lived with the Lord long enough to know that He defends. Oh, how terribly He defends His servants. I suspect He waits patiently for us to LET, which is to…believe in His character and trust His love.
