David was no stranger to betrayal, even by those closest to him, and so his pained cries in Psalm 55 ring true and give us words to voice our hurt when former friends turn against us. The depths of the friendship, the shared times of worship, and the intimacy of the counsel all serve to make the betrayal more distressing. But when the closest of friends fails, David directs us to our God, whose friendship runs deeper than that of any other person. God will never violate His covenant, but will preserve and sustain His people, His friends. Psalm 55 contains the cure for a failed relationship: cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you.
