Wesley's Notes for Lamentations 3:37

3:37 Who - Nothing comes to pass in the world, but by the disposal of divine providence. This seems to be spoken in the name of the people of God, arguing themselves into a quiet submission, to their afflictions, from the consideration of the hand of God in them.

  • Florence on Lamentations 3:37
    This tells us that whatever will be done or said against you by a man or spiritual forces will never have effect if the Lord has not approved it. We ought to know what God has said about us, we need to focus and meditate that rather than giving attention to what any other person or force will say about it. And the reason is that it is only God who has the final say in our lives in as much as we are connected to him. God bless you for hooking into his word.
