Had a breakthrough of sorts today. It seems that our character and our story has been questioned a lot since we have been here. Perhaps this is by no intention of those we talk to but only by our own insecurities. Whether or not it is intentional is not the point. The point is that we have felt attacked by the enemy in various ways since we have come here and one particular way is by feeling doubtful whether God really sent us. Glory be God, today we finally realized that we need not defend ourselves from these attacks. Instead we can join with our enemy’s accusations and call ourselves the scum of the earth. Our hope is not in ourselves. Our great hope is that we have died and it is no longer us that lives but Christ. Satan, what will you accuse me of? Would you bring me down to the dust, to the very place of God’s blessing? God, and God alone, will be our mighty defender. In our weakness, he will show himself strong. He is our Go’el: our redeemer kinsman/avenger of blood.
