Have you ever been in a group of friends discussing a topic and a question is raised to which no one knows the answer and someone says, “Ask Siri” or “Let’s Google it?” Children growing up today have probably never touched an encyclopedia, turning instead to the Internet as their main resource for knowledge. Interestingly, people search the Internet for more than just answers to mere facts. According to Google, they even search the Internet for answers to the meaning of life and the meaning of love.
We all have questions about the hard things of life. We all want to know “Why?” and “What’s next?” and “How long will this last?” But as believers, we don’t need to search the Internet for the difficult questions of life that plague us. Instead, God’s Word shows us that we need to bring our questions to the throne of grace.

The book of Psalms contains poems that were used in the Israelite’s worship. There were many different types of Psalms, some were sung in thanksgiving for something God had done. Others were sung to remember things from the past. Some Psalms were sung in praise to God for who he is. And then there were the Laments, the darkest of all the Psalms. These songs were sung to express the sorrows and fears of life in this fallen world..to read the rest of this post, visit iBelieve.
