How are we to respond when faced with deep, unfathomable pain? In this message from Psalm 13, Pastor Carlos teaches us about laments. A lament is pointing our pain to God in prayer, and the Book of Psalms is filled with laments, showing us how to respond when faced with pain.
Carlos shows us how we need to create a space to lament, which is challenging in our culture that wants fixes to problems right now. Laments give us permission to be honest with God, which leads to greater intimacy with Him. Finally, we see that hope can be found in the midst of our lament.
Regarding Psalm 13, Martin Luther observed that hope despairs, and yet despair hopes at the same time. If you've found yourself asking, "How long, God? How long?", this message is for you.
