Daily Devotion: Jeremiah Lamenting

Bible Reading: Lamentations 3:22-36

Key Verse: Verse 23 – “They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Key Words: great is thy faithfulness

Lamentations was written by Jeremiah right before they were taken into captivity by Babylon around 586 BC. But in the midst of Jerusalem’s adversity Jeremiah still cries out “Great is thy faithfulness.”

The Sun is a light twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. All year long, all decade long, all century long, the sun just keeps on shining. The problem, however, is that the earth gets dark. How can there be all that light and the earth still gets dark? It‘s because the earth turns. The earth gets dark because the earth is spinning on its axis. Therefore the side that faces the sun gets light and the side that is facing away does not.

If there is darkness in your life, it‘s not because God, the Father of Lights, is turning; it‘s because you are turning. He is the Father of Lights and in Him there is no shadow. There is no darkness in Him. Because God is faithful, He‘s consistent. Just like the sun, He is always shining and in His light, there is no shifting or moving shadow. We have to make sure we are turned toward Him.

What to do:
✞ I find it amazing that unfaithful man questions the faithfulness of God. Be faithful, because God is!
