Scripture:

Psalm 55:16 &22

But I will call on God, and the Lord will rescue me. 22-Give your burdens to the Lord and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.

Observation:

The psalmist turns to God in prayer as he is distraught by the betrayal of a former friend. The psalmist prays without ceasing throughout the morning, noon and night and the Lord hears his voice. The Lord not only hears our prayer but he cares for and will rescue us. 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”

Application:

I must understand and be prepared to face those that once were friends who we shared fellowship with could become adversaries. When dealing with an attack from an enemy, I must be with God! I need to ‘pray without ceasing to God and be in His word to gain wisdom how to confront an attack. I can’t go into a situation like this relying on my own worldly knowledge, rather I must turn it over to Jesus whose yoke is easy and burden is light. God cares for me and his plan is the right path to follow.

Prayer:

Father, Please let me be in constant prayer to you knowing your love and caring for me will lead me out of difficult places. Help me turn my worries/cares over to you to be sprit led and not rely on my worldly reactions to situations when confronted by adversaries.
