“The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.” (Psalms 37: 32-33)
The good that we do, that we are demonstrating and striving to know better, is a threat to evil and its false claim to power and presence. We may seem to be under attack for our righteousness, innocence, and love. We may feel this makes us sensitive to trouble and more likely to be subject to it. But this is truly not our fate.
Watch and love. Keep alert to the evil that wants to draw you into its dream, but even more, be alert to God, to His ability to keep safe and sure and pure that which is the very necessary expression of His own nature. This goodness that we know and love is founded in and grounded upon God. It is not a weak victim to opposition, ignorance, and hatred. This very Love that we reflect and prove makes us strong beyond measure.
Know yourself rightly and know God as your infinite, invincible Father. He is the Life that does not roll over for death, the Love that does not succumb to hate, the omnipresent good that does not make exceptions for evil. The world’s views, circumstances, and time cannot condemn the right idea to punishment and pain. The Truth has overcome the world, and has kept us held above the fray. We are safe. God is watching the righteous, and this truth is our safety and our victory.
