Even when others are against you, God is using them to bring you to an expected end. As I look back over the crucifixion of Jesus it was carried out by the hands of sinful men. Today, some people like to call them haters. Whatever you may call those that are working against you just know this, God has your back. The righteous servants of God will never be forsaken, and God is for us, so it doesn’t matter who is against us.
Pilate found no fault in Christ and sent Him to Herod. Herod was glad at first to see Jesus, but those that should have been for Jesus stood and accused Him. Then Herod and his men mocked Jesus. Herod had Jesus dressed in a beautiful robe and sent Him back to Pilate. Your enemies are not enemies at first until they get around certain people that fill their ears with lies concerning you. They may even become friends like Pilate and Herod. Know this that the power of God is stronger than any accusation against you. Some people don’t even know who or what is good for them. They need you, but don’t want anything to do with you. It’s not because something is wrong with you. It’s because of the Christ that dwells on the inside of you. So, they would choose who or what really isn’t good for them instead of who or what is beneficial to them.
You don’t have to worry. Just because it may look or even feel like they are prevailing over you just know that God has your best interest at heart. He’s causing it all to work together for your good. There is still hope. So have faith, not in who or what you see, but in a savior whom you don’t see. So truly you may have been given over into the sinful hands of men, but you are not going to stay there. Jesus went through beatings and piercing in His flesh in order to bring about peace, healing, deliverance, and salvation. We ourselves have much tribulation and suffering to go through as well and we shall find ourselves in the righteous hands of God. The one who created us for His good pleasure. The one that gave His only begotten Son for us because He loves us.
