New Every Morning  

December 28, 2003
by Rev. Steve Schlissel
 

You know that this book, Lamentations, is written by Jeremiah the prophet who had warned Israel concerning the judgment to come. And was a sensitive soul. And had the unfortunate pain of having to watch the destruction of his people through their stubbornness. The loss of the city of Zion, Jerusalem. And the destruction of the temple. And in this book which is an artistic jewel, he speaks of his experience at watching and knowing of the destruction, the judgment that came upon the people of God. And in verse 19 he says, “I remember my affliction and my wanderings. The bitterness and the gaul. I well remember them. And my soul is downcast within me. 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.”
