How Long O Lord?

February 23, 2020  — 

Psalm 13 uses “How long…” repeatedly, it’s a messy wrestle with God that is deeply human. Ultimately the Psalmist resigns to trusting God because he is the source of hope. This does not deny circumstances or pain, it reframes it and gives permission to express it freely to God, while clinging onto hope.

Scripture: Psalm 13, John 16:32, 1 Peter 4:12-13, Philippians 1:29, Psalm 34:17-18, Matthew 28:20, John 5:17
