Breaktime: Ruthless People

Ruthless People

Arrogant foes are attacking me; ruthless people are trying to kill me—    people without regard for God. Psalm 54:3

Now we find out why the Psalmist is crying out to God in the previous verse. His life is under attack, and he is feeling threatened. People who have no regard for God are coming up against him.

Friends, we all have had seasons of people foolishly accusing or attacking our character. We all at one time, have probably had a bad word spoken about us but if you haven’t, consider yourself blessed. The workplace and home can be a battlefield, and the ammunition is often words. Words are like bullets to the heart because they scar deeply and attack our very identity. The author knew this persecution and needed God to step in. 

Where does God need to step in your life? An image that has helped me in time of relational heaviness is placing Jesus between me and the other. Begin by praying God will show us the person through His eyes, which will help us to know how to pray. We may even begin to see their ruthless heart and know they are absent from God. God can intervene in the life of another, but are we praying that way? Are we talking to God about the ruthlessness in our life? Proud people are challenging because their motive is themselves.

God gives grace to the humble but resists the proud. But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” James 4:6
