Vindication is the story of my life. Time doesn’t permit me to share all the details of the wrongs I’ve endured from a husband who left me and my daughter behind, to being falsely accused of a crime I did not commit, to being lied on, robbed hundreds of thousands of dollars…

Time doesn’t permit. But God is a Vindicator. Our job is to hold out faith and keep our hearts right. In my devotional, Mornings With the Holy Spirit, I share these words God spoke to my heart in a past season:

“Don’t seek to protect yourself. Father is your Protector. Love seeks not its own. I know it’s difficult not to speak up or act out when people are trampling on your perceived rights. But a humble spirit gives up what it deserves. Humility does not fight for its rights. Take your cue from Jesus, who laid down everything that belonged to Him for your sake. Father vindicated Him and blessed Him with more than He gave away. Father will vindicate you in the same way—but you have to get out of His way. Seek the path of humility, and you will find what you really want.”

If you are hurting, if your head is spinning, hold on to hope. Let these 12 vindication promises strengthen you in the midst of this trial:

“Then Rachel said, ‘God has vindicated me, and has indeed heard my voice and has given me a son.’ Therefore she named him Dan” (Gen. 30:6)

“The Lord judges the peoples; Vindicate me, O Lord, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me: (Psalm 7:8).

“Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering” (Psalm 26:1).

“Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation; O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!” (Psalm 43:1)

“Save me, O God, by Your name, And vindicate me by Your power” (Psalm 54:1)

“He who vindicates Me is near; Who will contend with Me? Let us stand up to each other; Who has a case against Me? Let him draw near to Me” (Isaiah 50:8).

“Behold now, I have prepared my case; I know that I will be vindicated” (Job 13:18).

“For the Lord will vindicate His people, And will have compassion on His servants, When He sees that their strength is gone, And there is none remaining, bond or free” (Deuteronomy 32:36).

“The Lord has brought about our vindication; Come and let us recount in Zion The work of the Lord our God!” (Jer. 51:10)

“He will bring forth your righteousness as the light And your judgment as the noonday” (Psalm 37:6).

“For You have maintained my just cause; You have sat on the throne judging righteously” (Psalm 9:4).

“Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, ‘The Lord be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant” (Psalm 35:27).

Here’s a prayer you can say: Holy Spirit, give me the grace of humility. I choose to lay down my rights and humble myself as Christ did. I know that if I humble myself, You will exalt me over my enemies. Give me a patient spirit so that I will wait on Your vindication with peace.

  3. Camille

    This word and prayer blessed me tremendously!!! It’s exactly what I needed in this very season!

  4. Tina Grenadier

    This is exactly what God wants to root out of me RIGHT NOW!
    Encouragement & Exortation of others comes naturally to me, and I genuinely love to help hurting people.
    The problem / trigger is what I have called the Peter syndrome….. Let’s kick butt now ( if you come against me) and ask questions later…. in the name of Jesus and good religion of course….. barff!
    The Lord is calling me out on the truth of it all and it’s written so perfectly in this article!
    I have been fighting and defending my life for so long . Now I can see how very wrong it has been! I humbly surrender and give you full permission to be my protector & defender. Forgive me lord!
    Fill me with love where I have been on guard and ready to battle when love was always the answer and ammunition that was needed!!

    Jennifer thank you for this word. It is God sent for me. My head was spinning because I have a case in court where the respondent I think paid court official money to hide the file.

  8. Josefina Romero

    My dearest sister in Christ, thank you for those words.I had it deep in my heart and head that I was being punished while my husband was being blessed .It hurt so much ,I needed to understand that vindication shouldn’t come from my desires but rather from the heart of God and in His timing .God is our just judge and I still have to learn to be patient and obedient with God’s instructions.

    Thank you so much. My own two sons who have treated us like
    dirt after doing so much for them have ousted us from their lives and left us with no grandchildren to see or visit with.
    We miss and love them so much.
    You have encouraged me that there is hope in all things.
    God bless you and thank you again for following His voice in this.
    Bless you.

  13. Janet O'Connor
