“It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man” (Psalm 118:8).
When my vindication comes, I am confident it will be very evident that it was orchestrated by God alone. No name will be able to take the credit. God is my victor, and in Him alone do I praise. My good and dear wife has all along encouraged me to let God be God, not to take matters into my own hands, but to trust in Him fully, not in man. This is what Psalm 118:8 so aptly and clearly states. All along we have prayed God alone would be glorified, and that in the meanwhile, He would provide us with patience and endurance. Perhaps you have prayed the same. If so, thank you!
God’s purposes are often mysteries, and in Him alone must be our hope. As the apostle Paul so eloquently said, “We were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life; indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves in order that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead; Who delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver you, He on whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us, you also joining in helping us through your prayers, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the favor bestowed upon us through the prayers of many” (II Corinthians 1:8-11).
