Day by Day Through the Bible: Five Days in Lamentations - Digital Download
Lamentations is the sequel to the Book of Jeremiah. Both books focus on one event, the destruction of Jerusalem. The Book of Jeremiah predicts the fall of Jerusalem; the Book of Lamentations reflects on it. The theme of the Book of Lamentations is belief in God’s mercy and faithfulness as the key to a restored relationship with God. Hope, not despair, is the final word in Lamentations. This 15-page devotion takes you through the five chapters of Lamentations in five days.
Comment: Return to me and I will return to you. You have that chance today. If you, like Jerusalem, continue down the path of sin and rebellion, God will judge. Why do that? Why not return to the Lord today?
Prayer: Almighty God, sear in our hearts the seriousness of which You take life. May we understand from books like Lamentations, from chapters like these, You have created us, therefore, we owe everything to You. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
