Your time will come
Acts 24:10 “When the governor motioned for him to speak, Paul replied: “I know that for a number of years you have been a judge over this nation; so I gladly make my defence.”
We do get our chance.
We might be silenced at the moment and the accusers may hold the floor, they may voice their chants of slander at us, but we will one day be given our voice.
They may hold their positions of power and you may feel vulnerable and weak but these positions are not eternal and your day of rising will come. The oppressed will speak again and like Isaiah the prophet we believes for the coming day of vengeance. (61)
- Stand your ground, hold your tongue, wait for the sign. The sign will come and your chance will be upon you.
- Let your accusers finish their speech, let them run out of words to say. It will soon be over and then it will be your turn.
- Listen to the lies and no matter if it hurts, understand what is being thrown at you.
This is your moment. There may not be another. So use it.
