Memory Monday – Week 74
I’ve shared so many verses on hope previously, but today I’m sharing Lamentations 3:24-25 which says, I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.
In Lamentations 3, Jeremiah brings hope in the midst of affliction. He experienced hope in all the sadness and sin that surrounded him. Despite what was going on around Him, He chose to see that the Lord is faithful. He knew that God would keep His promises.
The only person who can bring us hope is Jesus. He isn’t just part of our portion, or our portion only at certain times or certain days, but He is always our complete and full portion. The Jesus cup isn’t half-empty or isn’t half-full, but it should always be running over!
He is worth waiting for. His promises are worth waiting for. He is good to those who wait, seek, and put their hope in Him. Don’t waste time looking for other things to be your portion. Jesus is right in front of you and wants you to wait on Him!
