Scripture

Lam 3:42-66

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Jeremiah do at his darkest hour? How did God respond?

Application

Do I trust God to ultimately defend His people and punish their tormentors?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Lord, I ask that I would endure trials and discipline without losing hope or faith in You. May I continue to call out to You until You answer. And when I see the righteous persecuted and the wicked flourishing, help me to remember that this state of affairs is only for a time, and the day is coming when You will deliver and vindicate Your people. I ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen!
