Discussion for Lamentations 3

  • Brianna vs.25
    Good is Jehovah to the one hoping in him, to the person who keeps seeking him.

    Jehovah God is the only means of salvation out of this wicked world. As we creep deeper and deeper into these last days, we see more and more how humans can not ring about any sort of hope or help to human kind. We have to put trust in Jehovah God in order to survive Armageddon.

    I am always shocked when I read or hear someone (especially [so-called] Christians) speaking against the servants of the LORD. God was not displeased with Jeremiah; but Jeremiah was in great pain in his heart because he loved so greatly; but his love and all that he tried to reach those people, was rejected and mocked. We should have that kind of love that weeps over the destruction of the sinner!
  • Lilly
    Jeremiah showed a waiting attitude and relied on Jehovah in his life, we want to‚Äč show the same patience in our lives.
