  • Marke on Lamentations 3:22 - 2 years ago
    This passage shows God's purification process in the life of every believer. When troubles come to born-again Christians they are the will of God and for the purpose of God to perfect the child of God.

    A great hymn that incorporates the meaning of Lamentations 3 is "How firm a foundation."


    "How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

    Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!

    What more can He say than to you He hath said,

    To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?"


    "Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,

    For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;

    I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,

    Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand."


    "When through the deep waters I call thee to go,

    The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;

    For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,

    And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress."


    "When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,

    My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;

    The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design

    Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."


    "E'en down to old age all My people shall prove

    My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;

    And then, when grey hairs shall their temples adorn,

    Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne."


    "The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,

    I will not, I will not desert to his foes;

    That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,

    I'll never, no, never, no, never forsake."

    Psalms 6:6-9

    "I was greatly troubled in my groaning. I will bathe my bed and my cover each night with my tears. I have become old in the midst of all my enemies. Depart from me, all you who work at lawlessness, for behold the lord has heard the cry of my weeping and the lord has heard my prayer."

    That long, horrible gaze into God's ugly mirror, the image of which becomes clean only through a myriad of flowing tears, and God's infinite grace and mercy.

    Psalm 56:8-9

    "You have taken account of my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle- are they not in Your book? Then my enemies will retreat on the day I cry for help. By this I will know that God is on my side."

    Exegesis on the Soul - Nag Hammadi Scriptures

    Psalm 103:1-5

    "Praise the lord, O my soul and all that is within me, praise his holy name. My soul, praise God, who forgave all your sins, who healed all your sicknesses, who ransomed your life from death, who crowned you with mercy, who satisfies your longing with good things. Your youth will be renewed like an eagle's."
