Lamentations 3:22-24 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
22 Because of the Lord’s faithful love
we do not perish,
for His mercies never end.
23 They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness!
24 I say: The Lord is my portion,
therefore I will put my hope in Him.
Many of you are probably thinking “yeah, that’s easy to say when things are going your way.”, Not so fast, when it comes to Bible interpretation, context makes all the difference. Jeremiah and all of Isreal were going through some times that would make most of our nightmares look like day dreams. Cities demolished, enslaved, starvation …
Yet Jeremiah wasn’t without comfort. He knew that the Lord would forgive, and deliver them. While the Lord may seem far away at times, there is still hope. God will somehow deliver if you trust in him.
