Lamentations 3:19-27 I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 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.

The prophet Jeremiah is in a pretty bad situation. Things are not “ideal” in his world, and yet He declares that God is faithful, that His mercies are made new every morning and He will wait on the Lord. God has been incredibly faithful to us, in good times and in bad. He has been faithful to us in teaching us that it’s His voice and not the voice of the critic that matters. He is the One who will define us, and if we are focused on “them” then we will not be focused on Him! We have a faithful God! In His mercy He pursues us for the purpose of saving us and sanctifying us. He is patient with us (II Peter 3:9). God is faithful! Our circumstances doesn’t dictate His character! We can always trust Him and know that He is in complete control of the universe and that all things are ultimately for His Glory and our good.
(Romans 8:28!)
