My margin notes from the Psalms:
The response to this:
Behold, God is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of my life.
5 He will return the evil to my enemies;
in your faithfulness put an end to them. -Psalm 54:4, 5
For he has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies. -Psalm 54:7
With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good. -Psalm 54:6
Not TITHE–freewill offerings are our token of “thanks” to Jesus for everything!
The Bible even speaks to what it feels like to be betrayed by a friend…
For it is not an enemy who taunts me—
then I could bear it;
it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me—
then I could hide from him.
13 But it is you, a man, my equal,
my companion, my familiar friend.
14 We used to take sweet counsel together;
within God’s house we walked in the throng. -Psalm 55:12-14
What is the solution when this happens?
Cast your burden on the Lord,
and he will sustain you;
he will never permit
the righteous to be moved. -Psalm 55:22
Jesus is a friend that will not forsake even when other friends have!
