Allow God to Fight for Us!
At one point in my ministry I had been falsely accused of having an affair with a woman that was at the time a friend but I had no interest in her as she was a married woman. None- the- less the false accusation was made and the woman played into it feeding her then husband with the lie, and all the while she was actually carrying on with her husband's best friend. I was being attacked and faced accusations from a church in Ohio, the husband in North Carolina, the woman's oldest daughter and several others including the lead pastor of a church where I was an assistant. While facing these very laughable false accusations I took a stand and remained silent knowing that the truth would become known.
Be still, and know that I am God;
I remained silent as my position in my home church had been stripped away, and I stayed silent while threats of violence were made. I stayed silent through it all as I felt the Lord was leading me to do.
Then, one day I awoke to a knock on the door and it was the lead pastor of my now former home church. He apologized and offered me my position back telling me that the accusing woman had indeed been caught with another man by her husband. The church in Ohio that had the pastor accused me contacted me some 3-4 hours later to apologize. The Bishop that had referred to me as a scoundrel actually came to my house to ask my forgiveness. My persecutors had been made humble and greatly ashamed by their actions and accusations. As for the woman caught in the act of adultery, she was brought to shame in a court of law and by her family some time after that.
I forgave my accusers, but I never forgot their harsh words and their actions towards me. I never went back to that church that I was an assistant pastor at and only once did I see the bishop again, that was in an emergency room where I prayed with Him for his wife. The Lord fought for me and He brought my persecutors to shame. I trust in the Lord for He is my rock and my refuge.
But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One.
Trust in the Lord, He will never leave you nor forsake you!

A Fragrant Aroma!
God is always with us and God will never leave us! When you add to this...
No weapon formed against you shall
We start to lose our fear of man, and begin to rely upon, depend upon our Lord and little by little the confidence builds.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
When we become totally submissive to the Lord, totally dependent upon Him, we become conquerors...
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Nothing can stop us, because nothing can stop the Lord...
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
1 John 4:4
We overcome the world and then the Lord disperses us as a fragrance. We become the light in a darkened world. As we spread the gospel message more hear the word and more accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior, we become a fragrance that continues to spread.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
2 Corinthians 2:14-15
