Many times children of God have been falsely accused or gone through certain things that people just chose to associate them with. In life when one person start calling someone all different types of names, everyone else believe that person is indeed associated with that.
In most cases you will discover that there is something special that God has put in that person who is falsely accused and it is what all these false accusations are trying to stop from materializing, and leave the accused in a state where he or she is just helpless, lacking self esteem and not even comfortable to associate with people because they don’t know what other names will be given to them.
Jesus Christ told us to love our enemies, bless them who curse us, do good to them who hate us, and pray for them which despitefully use us, and persecute us (Matthew 5:44). I want to make this clear that the actions of the enemies must be hated, but love the people. This means that if someone is always lying or tarnishing your good image, hate the lie and the consequences that come with it but love the person who is doing all this to you.
The bible talks about many characters that God used their enemies to bring them to a place that God had intended for them. Look at the story of Joseph in Genesis, how His brothers hated him and planned to kill him but later on decided to sell him as a slave.
Reading the story very carefully, you will notice that it was not the fact that their father loved Joseph too much that made them do this evil act. It is because of Joseph’s dreams that they were trying to stop. They thought they could stop the dream by selling him as a slave; little did they know that they were taking him where God had purposed him to be.
David is another character that used his enemy Goliath to get to a place where God had purposed for His life. It may not be easy to define enemies as those that are more important than our friends because of the pain, scars, and bad memories they bring in our lives. But, friends will only bring comfort while enemies will bring rewards at the end. Without Goliath, David would not have been brought to the limelight, and the King would not have known of his existence.
Jesus Christ was betrayed by Judas Iscariot without him realizing what His death would do to the entire world. Judas did not know that this was in fact the reason why God came as man.
Reading the lives of Joseph, David, and Jesus Christ; you will notice that what God has purposed for your life cannot be taken away from you by the enemy even though they may try to do all sorts of things to stop you. They tried to stop Joseph, but they helped to bring him to the place where God needed him to be.
This did not just end there, but God allowed Joseph’s brothers to see with their own eyes the plan that He had for him. “You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies” (Psalm 23:5). They will not just hear it from others but they will be able to see what God has done in your life. As much as the leaders of that time tried to stop Jesus Christ, the more they helped in completing God’s salvation plan; “For had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory” (1 Corinthians 2:8).
