When Pain is Real and God Seems Silent: Finding Hope in the Psalms
"In the midst of our suffering we need a wake-up call to the truth that God’s steadfast love never ceases.”
—Dave Furman, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Church of Dubai; author, Being There and Kiss the Wave
Are you feeling despondent, depressed, or discouraged? When we encounter severe trials and suffering, we are often tempted to think
that our situation is somehow out of God’s hands. In these dark times, God seems silent, and we feel isolated, confused, and alone. Everyone experiences suffering; even the biblical writers expressed anguish at times. This emotion is clearly captured in the Psalms. Through these brief meditations on Psalms 88 and 89, Ligon Duncan shows us how to respond to our own suffering with the assurance of our heavenly Father’s mercy, which sustains us even in the darkest circumstances.
