I am not gonna defend myself.



A funny thing happened on my way to this blog post... lol Wednesday night church, I was talking with my pastor, Mark, and I mentioned how hard it is not to defend ourselves. If someone accuses us, we want to "set them straight." Then an even funnier thing happened... I got fired. No, I don't feel like I deserved it, but we never do...

Here is what A. W. Tozer says..."Never defend yourself. We're all born with a desire to defend ourselves. And if you insist upon defending yourself, God will let you do it. But if you turn the defense of yourself over to God He will defend you. He told Moses once, in Exodus 23:22: “I will be an enemy unto thine enemies and an adversary to thine adversaries.”
A long time ago the Lord and I went through the 23rd chapter of Exodus together and He gave it to me. For 30 years now it has been a source of untold blessing to my life. I don't have to fight. The Lord does the fighting for me. And He'll do the same for you. He will be an enemy to your enemy and an adversary to your adversary, and you'll never need to defend yourself."

It was a fun place to work while it lasted... Thanks for the memories Mitchell Center.

So, Pray for me, I need a new job.
