Lamentations 3:22-23 ” 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.”

When we’re going through unbearable suffering & grief, God doesn’t expect a stoic response from us…and the Book of Lamentations is a good example of not just the venting of despair, but looking closely at God’s perspective in the midst of that despair. For without His great love, compassion, kindness, & mercy all creation would cease to exist. Job 34:15 explains it like this, “If it were His intention and He withdrew His Spirit and breath, all mankind would perish…” This Common Grace as it’s called, shows how compassionate & gracious God is, that He’s slow to anger, and abounding in love & faithfulness towards all. (Exodus 34:6) And so even in the middle of suffering we have everything we need forever in the person of Jesus Christ. So take ahold of His hand.
