"The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord." - Lamentations‬ ‭3:25-26‬


Jeremiah begins this chapter saying, “I have forgotten what happiness is.” He speaks very frankly about the bitterness and pain that God has brought into his life, as a faithful prophet in an apostate nation that hates God and despises faithful preachers. He talks about the terrible experience of living through the siege and destruction of Jerusalem as a part of this nation that he loves, even though they despise him.


And then he comes to these conclusions: first, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.” And second, "It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” In our darkest moments, when we feel like God has either forgotten us or even worse, singled us out for a special dose of hardship and trouble, it’s good to remember Jeremiah and His words, that waiting on God is good, because His steadfast love never ceases.

Lord, remind me of these words when I lose sight of them. Keep my heart close. Amen.


Pastor Dan Giles
