Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Let my vindication come from Your presence; Let Your eyes look on the things that are upright. – Ps 17:2

What does it mean to be vindicated? To “vindicate” is to “clear someone of blame or suspicion.”[1] To be vindicated, then, means to have your name cleared.

Has anyone ever tried to drag your name through the mud? Has a nasty co-worker ever tried to stab you in the back? Has a sibling or a good friend ever talked bad about you while you weren’t around? How did you respond? Did you get angry? Did you respond by trying to “fix it:” letting everyone know who you really are?

Vindication comes from God’s presence. Let it go, and turn to God. The more you try and fix things yourself, the messier things will get; but as you simply spend time in God’s presence, He will defend you. He will clear your name, and make sure you experience the supernatural favor Jesus died for you to have!

Prayer:

Father, thank You for vindication! I trust You to defend me. I know I find everything I need in Your presence. Heal me, and defend me, in Jesus’ name!
