Day 6

Jan 9

Lamentations 3:22-26

Because of the LORD's great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.’ The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD

For Jeremiah, it was a season of national calamity from invasion and destruction by their enemies as well as personal suffering and persecution by his own people. Jeremiah not only lamented over the sins of the nation but was also distressed, tormented and disturbed by his own rebellion against the commands of the righteous LORD.


Then suddenly Jeremiah found hope. He remembered that the LORD’s great love would keep  him from being consumed; that His compassions would never fail and would be new every morning; that His faithfulness was great.  Jeremiah was strengthened in affirming, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.” He declared that the LORD is good to those whose hope is in Him. He also believed that it was good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.


Jeremiah concluded his lament, “You, LORD, reign forever; your throne endures from generation to generation … Restore us to yourself, LORD, that we may return; renew our days as of old.” (Lamentations 5:19, 21).


  1. Cry out to the Lord day and night without ceasing, for the sins of the nation and for your own sins of rebellion (Lamentations 2:18-19; 3:40-42).
  2. Find your hope in the LORD’s character -  His righteousness, His great love, His unfailing compassions that are new every morning and His great faithfulness. Recognize that He is all you need (Lamentations 3:22-23). 
  3. Acknowledge that the LORD’s throne endures forever. Plead with Him to restore us and to renew us.
  4. Then be still and see the salvation of God.
