He is Faithful
“The Lord is good to those who wait for Him” — Lamentations3:25
Jeremiah witnessed the destruction of Jerusalem and saw his people carried into captivity. He wandered the streets of the city, overwhelmed by grief (Lam1:1-5).
Yet, in Jeremiah’s darkest hour, he said, “This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lam3:21-23).
Whether we suffer for our own choices or from those of others, despair may threaten to overwhelm us. When all seems lost, we can cling to the Lord’s faithfulness. ” ‘The Lord is my portion’ says my soul. ‘There I hope in Him’ “(v24)
The anchor of God’s faithfulness holds firm in the strongest storms.
