This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 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. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him. Lamentations 3: 21 – 24
With a prayer to God to remember his bitter plight, yet with lingering depression over his misery (vv. 19, 20), the prophet gets his eyes off himself and onto the Lord. Hope is revived when he remembers that the LORD’s mercies and compassions . . . are new every morning, and that His faithfulness is great (vv. 21-24). He cites lessons learned in the school of affliction: it is good to wait quietly for the Lord’s deliverance and to submit to His yoke early in life (vv. 25-27); to accept divine chastening and human blows and insults without talking back (vv. 28-30); God’s rejection is neither final nor causeless; His compassion and mercies will always follow (vv. 31-33); the LORD does not approve of oppression, injustice, or the denial of rights (vv. 34-36); He is sovereign, His Word prevails, all things serve His will; to complain when He punishes sin is senseless (vv. 37-39).
