It’s not nice to be a target, to be assaulted or under attack. Attacks can be mental and emotional, spiritual and social as well as physical. Whatever the case, it’s not nice. It’s even worse if the attacks come from persons you thought were your friends. Oh, the pain of disloyalty and treason.
David of the Bible had more than his share of attacks and in Psalm 43 he shares the commitments he made to properly handle the incoming fire. Learning from him, we too will learn how to make eight requests of God and how to stand strong on three vital commitments.
