12 Vindication Promises to Hang on to During the Pain

by | Jul 5, 2018 | Blogs, The Plumb Line

Vindication is the story of my life. Time doesn’t permit me to share all the details of the wrongs I’ve endured from a husband who left me and my daughter behind, to being falsely accused of a crime I did not commit, to being lied on, robbed hundreds of thousands of dollars…

Time doesn’t permit. But God is a vindicator. Our job is to hold out faith and keep our hearts right. In my devotional, Mornings With the Holy Spirit, I share these words God spoke to my heart in a past season:

“Don’t seek to protect yourself. Father is your Protector. Love seeks not its own. I know it’s difficult not to speak up or act out when people are trampling on your perceived rights. But a humble spirit gives up what it deserves. Humility does not fight for its rights. Take your cue from Jesus, who laid down everything that belonged to Him for your sake. Father vindicated Him and blessed Him with more than He gave away. Father will vindicate you in the same way—but you have to get out of His way. Seek the path of humility, and you will find what you really want.”

If you are hurting, if your head is spinning, hold on to hope. Let these 12 vindication promises strengthen you in the midst of this trial:

“Rachel said, ‘God has vindicated me, and He has also heard my voice and has given me a son.’ Therefore she called his name Dan” (Gen. 30:6).

“Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity. I have trusted in the Lord; I will not slip” (Ps. 26:1).

“Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man” (Ps. 43:1).

“O God, save me by Your name, and judge me by Your strength” (Ps. 54:1).

“He who vindicates Me is near; who will contend with Me? Let us stand up to each other. Who is my adversary? Let him come near to me” (Isa. 50:8).

“Behold now, I have prepared my case; I know that I will be vindicated” (Job 13:18, NASB).

“For the Lord will vindicate His people, And will have compassion on His servants, When He sees that their strength is gone, And there is none remaining, bond or free” (Deuteronomy 32:36).

“The Lord has brought about our vindication; Come and let us recount in Zion The work of the Lord our God!” (Jer. 51:10).

“He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday” (Ps. 37:6, MEV).

“For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging righteously” (Ps. 9:4).

“Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, ‘The Lord be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant” (Ps. 35:27, NASB).

Here’s a prayer you can say: Holy Spirit, give me the grace of humility. I choose to lay down my rights and humble myself as Christ did. I know that if I humble myself, You will exalt me over my enemies. Give me a patient spirit so that I will wait on Your vindication with peace.
