I heard someone talk about learning to maneuver the waves when you get knocked off your surfboard:  When swimming in the ocean, dont jump over the strongest part of the wave because it is going to knock you down.  If you dive under the wave, you are in the calmest part of the water.  And when you come back up, the wave is gone. 


That was really quickened to me as wisdom from the Lord when applied to facing demonic waves that sometimes hit us.  I heard this after facing a demonic attack through a person who had interpreted a very demonic dream to be about me.  I saw the perversion of truth in the dream, and instead of being angry or wounded, I took it to the Lord and grew from the encounter. 


Ps 42:7-8 NKJV

Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me. The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me — A prayer to the God of my life.



Precious heart, when the enemy accuses you, learn to bow low and listen with a humble heart, refusing to justify yourself.   Trying to stand in self defense can be like fighting the full brunt of an ocean wave that knocks you off your feet.  Learning to bow low in humility, defeats the enemy and his attempt simply sweeps away as the water of My Word washes over your soul. 


When you are facing accusation, learn to separate and discern the source.  I never come to condemn you or accuse you.  I do allow the rod of correction to touch your life to get your attention but it is always just.  As you resist My voice and My Word, I correct you in increasing degrees.  You already know that you have not been corrected to what you deserve, for My mercy is loving kindness. 


When your enemy accuses you, it will be mixed with truth and the perversion of truth.  Through the lips of men it will also be mixed with their own soul wounds, fears and wicked hearts.  Therefore learn to separate the just part of My correction and truth from the wicked perversions of the souls of men and the demons.  As you ask Me for wisdom, I will help you see the truth of where you are not lining up with My image, and help you receive the correction through My love.  Repent of where you fail.  Give your failings to Me, realign and try again.  You are loved dear one.  Simply allow what touches your life to conform you to My image, for My love washes over you and comforts and draws you closer to Me.


Prov 16:7 NKJV

When a man's ways please the Lord,  He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.


Matt 5:11-12 NKJV

"Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.  12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.


Heb 12:11-13  NLT

No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it's painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.




There are times when you bare your soul before men that you receive backlash. Accusation, misunderstanding and judgment leaves you feeling naked and shot.  Worse yet, in your wounded state, it leaves you feeling like a bad person.  This erodes and seeps down into your soul to further your decay of failure into self rejection.  Precious One, listen to ME. This is not My good gift.


Yes, I feed tenderhearted correction into your life as you need it.  Yes, I use circumstances to form you into My image.  And, yes, I bring everything into your life and turn it for good.  But do not think that I AM judging you, stripping you naked and shooting you over your failures.  I AM not rejecting you, dear one, and neither do I ever point a finger to condemn you.  I weep with you as you mourn over your mistakes, I weep even before you know you make them.


My beloved child, would I severely discipline a child who earnestly wants to please Me and seek My way?  I AM only stern to the rebellious who defiantly turn from My loving and gracious heart.  I AM full of compassion over you who fall and tremble at My Word.  And how it moves My heart to wild rejoicing as I see you willing to stand up and try again!  How proud of you I AM, dear one, to see you keep on keeping on.  Now, let My love wash and cover you.  You are not naked, you are clothed in My forgiving and pure white garment of righteousness.


NIV Romans 10:4

Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.



Unresolved issues not yet at rest,

Swirls to surface all my mess.

Churning, billowing waves in my soul.

I yield to You to make me whole.

As I release it all through my tears,

You quiet my soul and calm my fears.

I leave it all at Your feet of love.

At Your throne, sweet mercy above.

Counting the cost and labor of soul.

I’m satisfied what’s taken its toll.

I offer to You for redemption,

Hoping good comes from conception.

My child, I understand all of you.

Deeply transparent, deeply true.

What you see as flawed, cracked and broken,

Gushes sacrifice, a pure token.

I use your tears, everything you share,

A sweet smelling bowl for what you bear.

Each and everything you give to Me

Is living substance to set you free.

I’ve kindled you pure in brilliant light,

I see no flaw, I see no blight.

For when you yield, giving all to Me,

In a pool of gold, it’s Me I see.


Mal 3:2-3 AMP

But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap; [Rev 6:12-17.] He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness.





READER QUESTION:  It is wrong to defend yourself, as in Isa 54:17 when you are falsely accused?


SANDY RESPONSE:  This is a good question.   Isa 54:17 is our spiritual inheritance to defeat the demonic world by using our spiritual weapons to bind and loose us from word curses and the demons behind them.  And Rev 12:10-12 is our opportunity to be a witness for God's Word through our testimonies in Jesus.  However when we share the truth of our testimonies in Him, it is only through Jesus' blood that we overcome.  If we trust in our own words (even in speaking truth) then we are doomed to fail.  Usually self defense has a root of pride and allowing God to be our Defense is humility.  There is nothing wrong with speaking the truth and letting it be known, however the spirit behind our motives makes all the difference.


We have many scripture role models and too many scriptures to list in regards to self defense and humility.  The key is to humble ourselves before God and allow Him to be our Defense. 


Isa 54:16-17  NKJV

"Behold, I have created the blacksmith who blows the coals in the fire, who brings forth an instrument for his work; And I have created the spoiler to destroy.  17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me," Says the Lord.


Rev 12:10-12 NKJV

For the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.


James 4:10

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.





1 Peter 2:23-24

Jesus... when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;


Matt 26:62-63

And the high priest arose and said to Him, "Do You answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?" 63 But Jesus kept silent.




When David was accused, he humbled himself and asked the Lord to be his advocate and vindicate him.


Ps 35:11-14; 23-24  NKJV

Fierce witnesses rise up; They ask me things that I do not know.  12 They reward me evil for good, To the sorrow of my soul.  13 But as for me, when they were sick, My clothing was sackcloth; I humbled myself with fasting; And my prayer would return to my own heart.  14 I paced about as though he were my friend or brother; I bowed down heavily, as one who mourns for his mother. ... 23 Stir up Yourself, and awake to my vindication, To my cause, my God and my Lord.  24 Vindicate me, O Lord my God, according to Your righteousness; And let them not rejoice over me.


2 Sam 16:11-12 NKJV

And David said to Abishai and all his servants, "See how my son who came from my own body seeks my life. How much more now may this Benjamite? Let him alone, and let him curse; for so the Lord has ordered him. 12 It may be that the Lord will look on my affliction, and that the Lord will repay me with good for his cursing this day.




Rom 12:17-21

Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. 20 Therefore "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head."  21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


Moses, Daniel, Joseph, Jeremiah and many more let God be their Defense and vindication.
