There are some great spiritual morsels of truth in Lamentations, a book of the Bible written during the deepest, darkest hours of Israel’s history! The writer, although unnamed, some believe to have been Jeremiah. In those dark hours of Israel’s history, when the writer looks upon Jerusalem, a devastated city; and the temple, which was sacked, dismantled, and destroyed; and the nation which was carried off into captivity; the inspired writer cries out to God and finds hope!
So I jotted this in the margin of my Bible this morning at Lamentations 3:55-57… “Out of the deepest, darkest, pit… “I called on Your name, O Lord, from the depths of the pit! You heard my plead, ‘Do not close your ear to my cry for help!’ You came near when I called upon You and you said, ‘Do not fear!’” (From Lamentations 3:55-57)
I don’t know how deep the despair or frightening the pit of your situation and circumstances may seem right now… Take these words to heart! Call on His name! Cry out for His help! Look up out of the pit and hear His voice calling to you! … “Do not fear!”
