In a time of desperation for the people of Israel, Jeremiah wrote these words of hope. Take a minute and read the scripture:
21 But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 The LORD is my portion, says my soul,
therefore I will hope in him.
25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.Jeremiah remembers and therefore has hope! What is the source of his hope? The steadfast love of the Lord is without end. His mercies are new every morning. (Lamentations 3: 21-25 ESV)
Jeremiah’s hope is in the Lord. He hopes in Him. He seeks Him.
We’ve been talking about trials for the last few weeks and it is easy to feel a little worn down during a trial.
On this day read this portion of scripture again. And again. Believe it deep in your soul.
