The Lord's Compassions Never Fail (They Are New Every Morning)
"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.
I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion; therefore
I will wait for Him.'
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him,
it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young.
Let him sit alone in silence, for the Lord has laid it on him.
Let him bury his face in the dust- there may yet be hope.
Let him offer his cheek to one who would strike him,
and let him be filled with disgrace.
For men are not cast off by the Lord forever.
Though He brings grief, He will show compassion, so great
is His unfailing love.
For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the
children of men."
Lamentations 3: 22-33
If you are in the midst of suffering or trials and it seems that there is no light at the end of the tunnel, do not lose hope or trust in God. Though He did not willingly bring your affliction, nevertheless, He allowed it for whatever purpose that is at His mind and it will be revealed in glory at some future time. Suffice it to say that all children of God undergo such trials and sufferings so that our characters may be refined and molded by the Master Molder for His own great purpose. Let us just trust in His unfailing love and hope to see the end of our affliction at the very end of the tunnel. There, the light will shine so brightly and will dispel all the anguish and darkness in our souls.
