We are not to speak against God’s anointed ones. Take for example Moses. Today, I was reading about him in Numbers chapter twelve. Moses was the Lord’s servant. He was meek and faithful to God. Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses. The Lord heard them and God Himself enacted punishment upon Miriam. He made her leprous. Then Aaron asked Moses to forgive them. Moses didn’t hold any resentment. He immediately sought the Lord on Miriam’s behalf.
My point today is that we do not have to, nor should we, hold resentment toward others who have wronged us. We have to forgive. That is what Jesus taught us in the New Testament. It is time to release those who have hurt us. It would be best not to get hurt in the first place. What if immediately, when wronged by others, we cry out…”Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do (Luke 23:34).”? God hears our cries and He is the Judge. We do not need to judge others. We need to just follow Christ’s great example and plead for His mercy on them.
The resentment hurts more than just that person. Miriam and Aaron’s comment against Moses affected the whole camp. She was put outside of camp for a week and the entire camp didn’t move again until those seven days were done.
Psalm 5:4-6 NKJV For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness,
Nor shall evil dwell with You. 5 The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity. 6 You shall destroy those who speak falsehood;
The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
How we love thee! Thy ways are the best ways. Continue to shine Your light upon us so that we can see. The way gets dark sometimes as the world around us tries to gain ground. Shine through us as we study Your word. Make Your way known unto us. We seek Your wisdom, understanding and favor. We need You, Lord. We come humbly before You, seeking mercy for any area in which we have failed You. If there is resentment towards anyone or if we have said ill words ourselves about any of Your anointed ones ourselves, we ask for forgiveness. Help us to be always and only led by Your word. We rejoice and trust in You! Thank You for loving us so much. We shout for joy because You defend us. Help us to walk, full of joy because of our love for You (Psalm 5:11). Increase in us so that we may be true ambassadors of Yours, doing and saying only the things that would be pleasing to You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
