Great Is Your Faithfulness

GreatIsThyFaithfulness

Jeremiah was crying and in great despair over the travesty of the oppression from without and the rot from within God’s people. He was maligned, imprisoned, scorned, ridiculed, shamed and tortured. Though all these bad things happened to him personally, the famine and threat from the enemy has profoundly harmed the people of Jerusalem. So all around him was fear, pain and hopelessness.

In this context he writes, “This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. The Lord’s loving-kindnesses indeed never cease, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:21-23).

Think through all the pains and hardships you face in your life today.

Where is your heart crying?

At least for me, I have so little to complain about compared to all the Jerimiah went through. Yet in all of this, he grasped for the loving-kindnesses, compassion and faithfulness of the Lord. Can I do any less?

Take some minutes to pour out your heart to the Lord, then praise Him for His loving-kindnesses, compassion and faithfulness.

Maranatha,
