Lamentations 3:22-23 “22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”
Lamentations, written by Jeremiah, expresses the deep sadness and depression that Jeremiah felt when Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians. The destruction of Jerusalem was prophesied – the people of Israel sinned greatly and God gave them time for repentance but they would not. Ultimately, God allowed the Babylonians to destroy Jerusalem. The destruction of Jerusalem was justified yet God did not forget or forsake his people completely.
When we sin we may experience punishment and we may experience negative effects because of our sin, yet God has not turned his back on us. His mercies are renewed every day! Every morning is a blessing from God and a reminder that we can still turn to God – he is still there.
Lamentations is a book of sadness yet the sadness of a child of God is always tempered by the memory of a loving, gracious, faithful, compassionate God. Godly men and women may suffer and may experience pain and suffering but God is not the cause of our pain and suffering, he is the hope for a better day.
