When someone abuses another person, the pain ripples into future relationships. To be abused—by physical violence, sexual violation, or verbal attack—arouses fear, rage, confusion, despair, and escapism. How can you grow in faith and love after being terribly wronged? In this audio talk, David Powlison links abuse to the biblical categories of being used, misused, mistreated, and betrayed. Psalm 55, 56, and 57 serve as a template as Powlison shows how the psalmist experiences deep affliction and simultaneous hope that God will meet him in it. Powlison concludes showing how transformation can happen even in the face of grave evils.
