"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." (Lamentations 3:21-23 NIV)
Thoughts for Today
The prophet Jeremiah was no stranger to being in God's will, yet he had his share of suffering. He suffered not from making poor choices but from the hands of his own people and the oppression of the Babylonians.
Known as the weeping prophet, Jeremiah described his deep suffering in the book of Lamentations. In today's scripture he shows that our God provides hope and newness (or freshness) for every day.
Consider this …
The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you. (Psalm 9:9-10 NLT)
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3 NIV)
Let us seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word]. (Hebrews 10:23 AMP)
Father, thank you for your compassion and faithfulness. Thank you that if I trust you and keep my eyes on Jesus, I can awaken each morning with hope. In Jesus' name . . .
Free to Grow: Overcoming Setbacks and Disappointments by Jimmy Ray Lee, D.Min. The purpose of this group study is to help people overcome disappointments and setbacks that have arrested or are presently hindering their emotional and spiritual development. The group study will help participants understand how to be set free so that they can grow and become all that God has designed them to be. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
We hope these devotions are a blessing to you and to others in your life. We are happy to provide them for you at no cost, but thought you might want to consider a donation to help our ministry with the expense involved. You can safely donate through our website. Thank you!
