Happy Wednesday Saints.

Psalm 35:15 “BUT WHEN I STUMBLED, THEY GATHERED IN GLEE; ASSAILANTS GATHERED AGAINST ME WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE. THEY SLANDERED ME WITHOUT CEASING.”

The psalmist is expressing his distress and anguish as he faces opposition and betrayal from his enemies.

He describes how, when he stumbled or faced difficulties, those around him gathered in glee, taking advantage of his misfortune to attack and slander him.

The above verse captures the pain and isolation that can come when we feeling surrounded by adversaries who seek to harm us without cause.

Many of us can relate to the psalmist’s experience of facing adversity, betrayal, and slander.

In times of trouble, it can feel like the whole world is against us, like we are fighting a battle alone and without support. The words and actions of others can cut deep, causing us pain and leaving us feeling wounded and vulnerable.

However, in the midst of such challenges, we are reminded of the importance of turning to God for strength, comfort, and guidance.

Even when we feel abandoned by others, we can trust in the unwavering love and faithfulness of our Heavenly Father. He sees our struggles, knows our pain, and walks with us through every trial and tribulation.

When we face opposition and betrayal, we can take refuge in the shelter of God’s wings. We can pour out our hearts to Him in prayer, knowing that He hears and understands our cries. We can find peace in His presence, strength in His promises, and hope in His unfailing love.

Just as the psalmist found solace and strength in God’s presence, so too can you rest in the assurance that you are never alone in your struggles.

God is your refuge and fortress, your ever-present help in times of trouble. He is your defender and protector, shielding you from the attacks of the enemy and lifting you up with His mighty hand.

May you trust in God’s sovereignty and goodness, even when faced with adversaries and challenges. Cling to His promises, knowing that He will never leave you nor forsake you.

In the midst of trials and tribulations, may you find peace in His presence and strength in His unfailing love.

Have a fabulous day. God bless and lots’a love,

Warren
