Character Assassination

Sometimes the enemy overplays his hand and we can see exactly what he is up to. He showed his hand this week in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process. If we weren’t sure that Judge Kavanaugh might be chosen by God to be the next Supreme Court Justice, we might want to reconsider that position now.  Senator Dianne Feinstein let the Senate Judiciary Committee know Thursday, in their scheduled meeting, that she had forwarded an anonymous letter to the FBI for investigation. The letter alleged sexual misconduct by Judge Kavanaugh when he was 17 years old and in high school. The letter arrived in July through the office of Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA). She forwarded it to Sen. Feinstein who made no mention of it until Thursday. “This has all the indicators of an 11th hour character assassination and a desperate attempt to delay and defeat the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, who has a sterling reputation in his community, his profession, his church and among hundreds of friends, colleagues, and co-workers.”(Carrie Severino)1 A separate letter has since arrived to Committee Chairman Sen. Grassley’s desk. It is from 65 women who said they have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school. “Through the more than 35 years we have known him, Brett has stood out for his friendship, character, and integrity,” the women wrote. “In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect. That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day.”2

“A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold. In the paths of the wicked are snares and pitfalls, but those who would preserve their life stay far from them.” (Proverbs 22:1 and 5; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Intercede for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Pray that he will be able to stand strong and not give up amidst this attack against his reputation. Just the mention of  horrible accusations can taint our reputation. He will need to rely on God to exonerate him.

  2. Ask God to intervene and turn Senator Feinstein back from this course of destruction.

  3. Pray for the Senate Judiciary Committee members to seek truth and justice, not political gain.

  4. Contact your Senators and let them know how you feel about Judge Brett Kavanaugh as our next Supreme Court Justice.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we bring Brett Kavanaugh before you. He is a fallible human, but it appears he has tried to live his life in an integrous manner in everything he has done. In his personal life, as well as in his professional life, he has been consistent. We ask You to intervene and clean up this mess. Do not let the enemy rob this man of his godly reputation. Senator Feinstein and others responsible for this smear campaign need to be brought to task, Lord. We will leave that up to You, but we do ask You to correct the record against Judge Kavanaugh. Exonerate him and remove any stain or blemish. Let many Christians call their Senators and let them know we are standing with him and want him confirmed as our next Supreme Court Justice. Obviously, the enemy is very afraid of him serving in that office! In Jesus’ holy name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The enemy’s plan to ruin Judge Brett Kavanaugh will be exposed and will fail!
