Lamentations 3:22-23 “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.”
Jeremiah’s life reveals a portrait of unending sadness and deep depression, but he was a devoted and precious man of God. After enduring a life of being rejected, hated, mocked, imprisoned, ignored; after seeing his beloved Jerusalem ransacked, desecrated and destroyed; after experiencing the horror of war, the brutality of the enemy and the pangs of hunger, Jeremiah was still able to stand forth amid the rubble of the city and the bodies of the dead and lift his voice in praise to God for His great, unfailing faithfulness to His people.
How was this possible? Despite his trials and his troubles, Jeremiah was still able to find hope in a hopeless situation because he believed in the faithfulness of His sovereign God.
Like Jeremiah, as you and I face the battles, storms challenges, obstacles, hardships, sorrows and our enemies in this life, we must always remember that we too, are precious men/women of God and that He is well able to carry us safely through. Take everything to God in prayer and trust in His unchanging, and unfailing faithfulness.
Great is the faith that can stand amid the wreckage of life and declare the praises of God. Jeremiah was that kind of a believer. Thankfully the Bible gives us overwhelming evidence of the unchanging faithfulness of our sovereign God. “Great is His faithfulness!”
