19You, Lord, reign forever;
    your throne endures from generation to generation.
20Why do you always forget us?
    Why do you forsake us so long?
21Restore us to yourself, Lord, that we may return;
    renew our days as of old
22unless you have utterly rejected us
    and are angry with us beyond measure.
(Lamentations 5:19-22, NIV)

 

LAMENTATIONS 1-5

DAY 161 JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Focus Verse For Today: Lamentations 5:19-22

Today our journey will take us through all 5 chapters of the book of Lamentations. It is the story of the journey back from destruction.

 

Pray for God’s understanding of the book of Lamentations. Read chapters 1-5 of Lamentations. (The entire book.) Let’s journey!

 

Chapters 1-4 of the book of Lamentations is vivid depiction of destruction that sin brought to Jerusalem and the lament of the remnant whose lives were spared. Sin separates us from God as it did His chosen people. (Lamentations 1:1-4:22)

 

Chapter 5 continues with the remnant’s lament for their situation and concludes with a plea for forgiveness and restoration. (Lamentations 5:1-22)

Solomon teaches that wisdom begins when we completely submit ourselves to God allowing His laws and statutes to govern the conduct of our lives. Notice submission must be complete, “in all your ways submit to him,” Provers 3:6(a), “and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:6(b) Obedience, or submission, to God’s authority results in God’s blessing being bestowed. Allow God to make your paths straight.
