The Cry of Suffering

Timothy Keller Sermons: Haman’s Cry of Darkness

Suffering is ever present in this world and Christians often question its presence in their own lives. In this podcast Tim Keller explores Psalm 88 and encourages the listener with the teaching it offers.

"This message is from the Psalms, which is the prayer book of the Bible. In the Psalms, there are many prayers by people who are suffering and who are asking God for help, asking God for rescue, for relief.

This is a psalm that ends without hope, and has “darkness” as its last word. What is a prayer like this doing in the Bible? There are four messages this psalm teaches us: 1) Spiritual and personal darkness can last a long time no matter what you do; 2) Times of darkness are often the best places to learn about God’s grace; 3) Times of darkness can sometimes be the very best situation for you to grow into someone of greatness; and 4) Darkness can be relativized."
