8/2/15-How to pray in seasons of darkness

God’s invitation to greater intimacy with and accessibility to Him.

Darkness…….

•   The darkness of God’s apparent ABSENCE.
>The Psalm teaches us:
?   To speak what you FEEL to God.
?   To bring it ALL—your full range of emotion, anger, grief, and despair to God.
?   That when you ENGAGE God you declare your confidence in Him.


•   The darkness of SELF-CONTEMPT.
>Self-contempt turns our circumstances back on us, because we don’t believe God could HANDLE our turning them back on Him.
>God challenges us to transition from self-contempt to TRUSTING God.
>Confession is not about our unworthiness but about our WORTH.
