So many of us are “Worn” by the abuses of this world. We are frail and torn. We have been beaten down physically and emotionally. Many have been deceived by those who we considered closest…our companions, our spouses, those we have made covenant with for life. How can those we love turn on us? …and how can we overcome this!
Well, I was thinking about this scripture the other day but did not know where to find it. It had meant so much to me when I was devastated. Then when I opened my Bible, there it was… parts of Psalm 55. This helps explain the brokenness that many have endured. It is horrible if an enemy or a stranger attacks you; but it is a different dimension when it is someone you love that turns on you. But we always have Help available…
“If an enemy were insulting me,
I could endure it;
if a foe were rising against me,
I could hide.
But it is you, a man like myself,
my companion, my close friend,
with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship
at the house of God,
as we walked about
among the worshipers.” Psalm 55:12-14
“My companion attacks his friends;
he violates his covenant.
His talk is smooth as butter,
yet war is in his heart;
his words are more soothing than oil,
yet they are drawn swords.” Psalm 55: 20-21
The deception that many of us have experienced with abuse, adultery and abandonment is talked about right here in these passages. He attacks his friends. He violates his covenant. His talk is smooth as butter but war is in his heart. This scripture hit me when I first read it. Abuse! Adultery! You see, people do not know what goes on behind closed doors. Many “good appearing marriages” are not what they seem to others in contact with them. People do not know what is hidden in a man’s heart… but God does. Nothing is hidden from Him. He knows the truth and the Truth will set you free. God will get you through the brokenness that you are experiencing… just hold onto Him. He is the Key to overcoming everything that this world throws our way. Trust Him…
Dear Lord, You see the multitude who are struggling with the abuses of this world and the devastation that accompanies the deception and manipulations of man. You know what is in the heart of each man and all that is hidden from human eyes. We ask You to bring exposure to those things hidden and healing to those broken. Your children need You to expose the lies that come against them and turn it all around for their good. Bring redemption and healing to all who are worn and torn from the abuses of man… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
