Daily Devotional | Press into Pain

  • February 20, 2024 | Psalm 143:1

Pain, both physical and emotional, is a part of human experience, and as Christians we are not exempt. How can we walk through times of suffering while remaining in God’s love? In 2 Samuel 15, David found himself in deep pain. His son Absalom had gained a following and was conspiring to take the throne from his father. David fled for his life. Many commentators believe that David wrote Psalm 143 from that place of pain and betrayal.

From the Editor

Hello friends,

Have you ever wondered: What does it mean to love and be loved? And as Christians, what does loving God really mean?

Join Today in the Word for a Bible study titled: Understanding the Greatest CommandmentAuthor Kelli Worrall will be our guide as we explore what the Bible means when it says to love God with our whole being. For even more, listen to this month’s YouTube conversation with Kelli where you’ll hear a helpful introduction to the study.

In addition, we have go-along family studies that will help you teach your children about God’s love. One of our readers, Julie, teaches Sunday School, and she said these studies were the perfect fit for her class. We love that idea! Be sure to download your free February family study here.

Thank you for reading the Bible with us. We also appreciate your prayers that many more people (and families) will be encouraged and blessed by this ministry.
