Sad Songs (Week 4)
March 20: God Shines In Our Darkness Notes / Podcast / Video
This Psalm is uncharacteristic in that it has a remarkably dark ending. Heman cries out to the Lord and prays to him, yet God hides his face from him. This man is surrounded by darkness and there is no light getting through. What is a prayer like this doing in the Bible? Rather be naive about the inevitable disappointment in life, we can learn that although darkness can last a long time, it is often the best place to learn about God’s grace. Ultimately, that Jesus descended into darkness so that we can look forward to living in the light.
