Hello and welcome to World Hope! It is a joy and a pleasure to worship the Lord with you today!
This week in my devotional Bible reading, from the book of Lamentations chapter 3:22-26, the prophet Jeremiah writes, “The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!’ The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.”
As I read this text, written by Jeremiah following the destruction of the city of Jerusalem, as he observed the ruins of his beloved homeland; in the midst of the devastation, he could still see God’s faithfulness and was confident of God’s continuing mercies and favor. Jeremiah talked about hope when he was surrounded by hopelessness. When all seemed lost he could still see God and His promises of compassion and mercy.
God remains faithful today and His mercies and love are always surrounding you, even when things seem dire. Like Jeremiah we can sing, “Great is Thy faithfulness.”
