Have you read Lamentations 3:22 lately? (I know, Lamentations isn’t the most popular book in the Bible, but it is quite fascinating!)
Here’s what the verse says: “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.”
Here’s the deal…
It does NOT say, “Because I control the situation…” or “Because I have earned his mercy…” I will get through a dark time. I have nothing to do with it. (Oh, that is such a good thing.)
It says “Because of the Lord’s great love,” I will survive. I will get through it.
If you’re having a tough time, remember…God’s love will hold you up. Relax and let Him be God.
You can’t do anything to deserve God’s grace and mercy. It is offered to you because of the Lord’s great love. His faithfulness.
What a gift.
