The Lords mercies. May 11
It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. Lamentations 3:22
Jeremiah was writing laments or sorrowful recordings of the awful state Israel had fallen into. In the midst of these lamentations, we have a promising verse and it says, the only reason we have not been utterly defeated is because God is full of compassion. Things may not be exactly like you would like them to be. God sometimes has to work thru disciplining his people, this is what was going on in Jeremiahs day. Things were difficult, but there was hope because God is compassionate and full of mercy. All they had to do was repent of wrong and turn to the lord and He would restore. It still works today, because God is still compassionate towards His people.
