In our daily lives it is not an understatement to say that a battle is fought both in the flesh and spiritually. It is not uncommon at all to struggle with both. The nice thing is that God has provided guidelines. There is a how to book that remains number one on the best seller list. This book gives example after example of things that happen and the results there of. Man is not to fear. Pray sincerely to God. Have faith. Know that wisdom and understanding are more precious then silver and gold. David is one that comes very close to us in his daily activity. In this Psalm he speaks of dealing with those that dislike him. Sound familiar? Office staff? Boss? Family member? Though these things bother David, he knows that in the end God has his back. He worries and writes about it just the same.
Be merciful to me, my God,
for my enemies are in hot pursuit;
all day long they press their attack.
My adversaries pursue me all day long;
in their pride many are attacking me.

in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?
