“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 among the worshippers.”
One of the greatest pains you can face is the utter betrayal of a close and trusted friend. Indeed, I have felt no greater pain than when I was rejected by those I loved dearly.
It is the ultimate rejection – to be known and then forgotten.
Wounds that deep are not easily healed. But take heart, there is a path to healing.
Healing takes time. Don’t rush it! Instead rush to God:
“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” Psalm 55:22
Those who run to God in their distress will not fall. When others fail you, trust God.
