24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

Key Verse: “It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22, 23).


The fall of Judah and the destruction of Jerusalem had brought untold suffering upon the people. Their sorrow, the direct consequences of their sins and rebellion against God’s word, was boundless. Yet, the prophet who personally witnessed it, urged them to repent and rely on the sure mercies of God.

Israel had turned sin into a habit that appeared to give them immeasurable pleasure. Ceaselessly, the Lord warned them through His prophets and messengers. They would only repent by turning to Him in the face of imminent danger or oppression in the hands of heathen enemy nations. Prophet Jeremiah fearlessly prophesied about their seventy-year captivity as a result of their sin, but they never bothered.

The prophet in our text had felt personal sorrow over the tragedy of the destructions and attendant sufferings of the people. However, he was quick to remember that God will not always chide neither will He keep His anger forever. He told them that though they were in such sorrow, yet, it was of the Lord’s mercies they were not consumed.

Many people take God’s mercy for licence. They are quick to claim that if He did not approve of their sinful lifestyle, they would have been destroyed. But they are ignorant of God’s attribute of long-suffering.

Have you ever pondered on the magnitude of God’s judgment? It is wise to ask for His mercy than wait for His sentence. There is danger in waiting until the door of mercy is shut. Repent and be reconciled unto the Lord.

Thought For The Day: Don’t take God’s mercy as license to sin.
