The great sign of faith is not the absence of difficulties or always emotionally feeling God’s presence. It is the dogged determination to hold on to the Lord in the midst of the storm.

This psalm gives us a glimpse, even if only fragmentary, of the engulfing anguish of that Man of Sorrows who stood in our place.

Many of our churches have been turned into celebration centers so that prayers of anguish, lament, and anger are not given space.

The Psalms include strong exhortation for us to listen and heed all the ways God speaks to us.

Many of the great prayers of the Psalms, both hopes and fears, are fulfilled in Jesus Christ. He is the fulfillment of all our hopes and the dispeller of our fears.

The history of Israel is a kind of lived parable from which we can discern the basic patterns of God’s dealings with humanity at any time, and in any age.

The glorious victory that belongs to us as Christians is because God has made war against the powers of sin and death.

Before the final outpouring of God’s wrath and judgment, God himself in Jesus Christ has interrupted that wrath with an incredible act of grace—taking the cup of wrath and drinking it himself.

Even in the darkest of times, we are reminded that Jesus Christ conquered death itself, that Jesus trampled over death and brought us through that darkness into new life.

In the end, God does not offer any technical explanation for the presence of evil and suffering. Instead, he offers up himself.
