I was reading Lamentations recently, and I was struck by Jeremiah’s words: “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.” If you know the setting of Lamentations (the title itself gives quite a bit away), you know that many people would find it difficult to speak those words considering the sad circumstances.
But Jeremiah’s words describe exactly how we’re supposed to think during every season of our lives. When we focus on God’s faithfulness and love, we go from hopeless to full of hope.
Today, we’re going to talk about three spiritual actions in challenging times:
- Wait for the Lord
- Seek the Lord
- Sit alone in silence
