This passage of Scripture in Lamentations is a beautiful reminder of the Love of God and His faithfulness to us, His people.
Jeremiah, the author of this book, was going through some pretty rough times. His life was a mess! But these words that came out of his heart must be a blessing and an inspiration to all who struggle in this day and age:
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
Even though times were hard and it looked like there would be no end to the pain and hardship, he remembered something! He remembered the steadfast love of the Lord! He remembered that His mercies were new every morning! He remembered that God was forever faithful to them who trust in Him!!!
You may be going through something today. It may not be as dire as Jeremiah’s situation, but it is your situation! And you need some help!!! I challenge you to remember that God is Love and He is faithful. He will always be there for those who put their hope and trust in Him.
The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
