Trusting God when it Hurts (Psalms 12-14)

The Psalms is a songbook consisting of a rich variety of poems which God’s people have used through the ages to pray and praise Him through the ups and downs of life. Psalms 12-14 are often described as Psalms of Lament, because they reverberate with the sound of the Psalmist’s cries for help from God. Overwhelmed by the circumstances of life and universal opposition, the Psalmist is refreshingly real with God; Psalms 12-14 chime powerfully with believers who are experiencing anxiety, frustration, uncertainty, doubt, suffering or facing hostile opposition in their Christian life.
