I was reminded of this scripture yesterday and being honest, the book of Lamentations isn’t my “go to” book in the Bible but my gosh, does this scripture speak to my heart.
The writer (Jeremiah) is certain of whom God is and I think we can learn a lot from this. He writes that God’s mercy is as sure as the sunrise.
Lamentations was written soon after the fall of Jerusalem and Jeremiah grieved deeply because of the devastation to the nation. The Lord was all Jeremiah needed and he knew without question, that God delivers His people from judgement because God is faithful and His love for us, never ends. Therefore, trusting God in the day-by-day things, (even in great times of pain) makes us confident in God’s great promises for the future.
Maybe there are things in life that you thought God would not forgive? But the truth is, Gods love is greater than any sin and He promises forgiveness.
The scripture in Psalm 103:12 talks through, how God has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. This means that it is never ending. Issues only occur when we don’t realise this, and it then allows shame and guilt into our lives because we don’t address them with God.
Walk in freedom…
