Gang Stalking Victims: A Friend Who Truly Understands and Cares
Do you feel isolated, helpless, that no one can fully understand the cruelty and injustice you face on a daily basis? Perhaps you feel that there is no one you can trust; no one you can pour out your heart to? If so, please be assured that there is someone who is fully aware of your sufferings. A friend who really understands. He can be an unfailing support who sticks with you and encourages you when you need it most. In fact, this dear friend has written a letter that reflects his depth of understanding and deep concern for your plight.
Our Heavenly Father is that friend. Rather, than view all human suffering with an uncaring eye, he has lovingly written in advance a letter that expresses his compassion and concern. In this letter, he provides examples of real life individuals who faced adversities quite similar to ours. One such example is the man David who was chosen by God to serve as King of the nation of Israel. Twice in his life, he became an outcast and fugitive, and was targeted by powerful groups that sought to destroy both his name and his very life. In fact, members of his own family participated in these attacks against him. His experiences, and how our Heavenly Father pulled him through can be a wonderful source of strength to us. Indeed, it is not a mere coincidence that this account was recorded and preserved until today. "This is written for the future generation . . ." states Psalm 107:18. The recorded account of David's experiences is like a personal letter from a friend who truly understands and cares.
Does the following reflect the sort of suffering you face?
"All day long they keep hurting my personal affairs; All their thoughts are against me for bad. They attack, they conceal themselves, They, for their part, keep observing my very steps, While they have waited for my soul." —Psalm 56:5-6
"Those hating me without a cause have become even more than the hairs of my head. Those bringing me to silence, being my enemies for no reason, have become numerous.. . ." —Psalm 69:4
"They have surrounded me like waters all day long; They have closed in upon me all at one time. You have put far away from me friend and companion; My acquaintances are a dark place." —Psalm 88:17-18
In view of what you have just read, please ask yourself these questions. Is our Heavenly Father aware of what you are going thru? Are you alone in the distresses you suffer? How can knowing that he understands benefit you?
The Book of Psalms, contains many expressions of what the man David, a servant of God, endured. Those writings are lovingly preserved for you and I, who may well undergo similar trials. By reading these Bible accounts, in particular, Psalms 50 to 102, I have found great comfort in knowing that my Heavenly Father knows what I undergo. He knows your situation as well. Centuries in advance, he decided to pen a letter to us, "this generation," reflecting his concern for our plight.
However, of even greater benefit is knowing that our Heavenly Father can come to our aid, and be an unfailing source of comfort and strength. Indeed he proved to be that for the man David, and enabled him to cope with and triumph over his adversities. Please note the following proof that David provided of Gods unfailing love and support:
". . .Whatever day I get afraid, I, for my part, shall trust even in you." —Psalm 56:3. Like David, can you trust in our Heavenly Father during fearful times?
"When my disquieting thoughts became many inside of me, Your own consolations began to fondle my soul." —Psalm 94:19. Reading God's Word was a source of consolation for David that protected him from being emotionally overwhelmed by his anxieties." Can you take advantage of the emotional strength that comes from reading God's Word?
"He will certainly turn to the prayer of those stripped [of everything], And not despise their prayer." —Psalm 102:17
David well knew what it meant to lose everything. Although his fellow man despised him, he knew that God cherished him as a friend, and carefully listened to his prayers. What confidence can you have if you sincerely turn to God, and pray for his help?
Overwhelmed and distressed, eyes glistening with tears, David called upon the kindness and compassion of his God, Jehovah, begging him, "Do put my tears in your skin bottle. Are they not in your book?" —Psalm 56:8. David was confident of God's compassionate concern. It was as if God was preserving each of his tears in a "skin bottle." In David's day, skin bottles had a well earned reputation for preserving and keeping water cool, even in the intense heat of the desert sun. What this illustration shows is that David knew that our Heavenly Father never forgets the suffering we undergo. Not only is he aware of our suffering but also the emotional impact of those trials. He greatly values those memories and preserves them. Please be assured that by drawing close to God, you can have the same comfort and assurance.
David endured and survived these distressing times in his life because of God's help. "I have become just like a miracle to many people; But you are my strong refuge." —Psalm 56:8. Yes, so powerful was the aid that God provided, that David's survival was like a miracle in the eyes of his enemies. David had success because he made God his refuge.
If we pray to God today and are willing to accept his guidance and direction we too can enjoy the wonderful comfort, strength and protection that David enjoyed. You are not beyond his help. You are not alone. Sincerely ask for his help in prayer and be willing to accept his guidance. Be assured that our Heavenly Father understands your suffering and will tenderly care for you as well.
