Lamentations 3:1-20

Passage Lookup – Read or Listen

Think of when you have experienced affliction? What has been your response?  What images depict the effects of God’s wrath (focus on the verbs)?

Jeremiah writes about the misery of his people. It is during difficulty that we come to a cross road where a clear choice is to be made. We can follow the road sign that leads to failure or we can follow the road sign that leads to success.

The problems we go through in life are not stop signs; they are guidelines and we can still find joy because it is at those times that God will produce a sure sign to success. Ask God to give you the sign that leads to success. Ask Him to give you the will to follow the path He has laid down.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
