Have you ever been at the point in your life that no matter which way you turn there was "something" or "someone" that had been appointed as the ambassador of pain and conflict for your life?
I guess what I’m saying is, it seems like lately that life has a way of constantly reminding you that it’s only goal is to make your life miserable!
As someone rightly expressed it, "I’m catching it from all sides..."
David knew this feeling. He was catching "it" from every direction of his life. His pain, difficulty, discouragement came from no less than four different sources. Let’s examine them together!
I. From His Foes (69:1-4)
II. From His Flesh (69:5-6)
III. From His Family (69:7-8)
IV. From His Faith (69:9)
Conclusion: His answer, He sought the Lord in the midst of it all and when he found Him he could cry Holy!
