The Journey with Ron Moore

Friend Wound | Psalm 55:9-15

Todayís Passage: Psalm 55:9-15
Key Verses: Psalm 55:12-14

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.

We appreciate friends who can speak into our lives, encourage us and tell us when we are off course. Unfortunately, we have all experienced times when a friend betrayed us. Thatís what happened to David in todayís psalm.

David was taking shots from a close friend. He describes this person as a ìcompanion,î a person with whom he had enjoyed ìsweet fellowship.î The person delivering the blows was a person with whom he had worshiped. The insults of an enemy are expected, but not the betrayal of a friend.

Having godly friends is a vital part of Christian community. We also need to remember that our friends, even the mature, godly ones, are human. Sooner or later every friend will disappoint us; some may even hurt us. Thatís why our sights and affections must stay focused on God. He is the Perfect Friend. He will never disappoint.

Father, you are the Perfect Friend who will never betray, never leave and never disappoint. Help me to keep my focus on you. In Jesusí name. Amen.
