There are moments, sometimes years, where a Christian comes under great anguish. More than merely an external hardship, these are those moments in our lives when all appears to be dark and growing darker! What are we to do? We feel alone and that no one understands our situation. Helpful people give us advice that smacks of criticism or crass assumption. Others simple seem to avoid us, leaving us even more despairing. It is here that David brings us much instruction in this psalm. Here is a passionate song that describes the ebb and flow of one man's struggle in the face of great difficulty. We witness the fulness of the human experience when it takes faith in God and puts it up against the darkness of this fallen world.
Great Sermon! I thank & praise God for this sermon! Even though i still often question why God put me through a difficult trial which lasted for 2 dreadful years, i know that He will reveal His will to me in His time. And through the Holy Spirit, i have faith that above all, God will be glorified!!! Praise God!!!
