Lamentations 3:25 – Verse of the Day 3/6/14
The book of lamentations consists of passages of lament for sin followed by passages of comfort. This verse immediately follows a passage of lament and focuses on the good character of God. God’s goodness demands a response, and so those who seek Him and wait patiently for Him experience the benefits of His character. God initiates our relationship with Him, but He also enables us to respond to Him with faith.
As you pray, ask the Lord to help you to see and long for His good character. Pray that He will make you patient and give you the desire to seek Him. Ask the Lord to help you to see the magnitude of your sin in order that you might fully appreciate His great work of forgiveness. Praise the Lord, because He is good!
