Seminar: Hope and lament / prayer
“God is good all the time!” We often hear this in church. The worship leader would say, “God is good” and the congregation would respond, “all the time.” But how about those who are finding it hard to see the reality of that statement because of so much suffering? Is it a sign of weak faith if we are not able to declare that God is good? Not necessarily. Even Asaph, one of the worship leaders in the Bible, struggled in affirming God’s goodness. In Psalm 73, Asaph shows us that there is room for our struggles in the presence of the Lord.
