Scripture Reading: Psalm 27:12
Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe cruelty.
Reflection: David prays and asks God to deliver him from false witnesses. A false witness is someone who ‘tells lies about another so as to make them appear guilty when they are innocent’. They either twist what you say or do, or fabricate a completely false story about you. False witnesses are the reason behind a lot of suffering in people’s lives. Such sufferings include incarceration, loss of business contracts, loss of relationships, loss of favors, divorces, deaths etc etc. Biblical characters such as Naboth (1Ki 21:8-14), Stephen ( Acts 6:11-13), and Paul ( Acts 17:5-7) all suffered because of false witnesses. Jesus himself suffered at the hands of false witnesses which led to his crucifixion (Matthew 26:59-61). The effects of the activities of false witness are such that, David’s prayer must become yours too. Deliverance from false witnesses in life is a must! Ask the Lord for it!
Prayer: Oh Lord deliver me from false witnesses.
Confession: God is my deliverer. False witnesses will not succeed with their plans against my life. They shall remain confused.
