Finding Daily Peace Living in a Crumbling World--His Great Faithfulness In Our Great Suffering


Video from DTBM


"GOD’S PEACE WHILE THE WORLD CRUMBLES His Great Faithfulness in Our Great Suffering Lamentations 3 The same Christ who said, “Rejoice when you face persecution” (Matthew 5), also goes on to say that the worst is yet ahead (Mt 24). When Jesus described the future He tells us of a time when all of us who know and love Him will suffer greatly. Add that to all of the struggles, trials, challenges, hurdles, and disappointments life brings and it amounts to a huge amount of suffering in a lifetime. So this evening as we turn to Lamentations 3, we turn to the greatest reminder in all of God's Word that when there are great sufferings there is the reality of God’s great faithfulness. Do you remember all of the weeping prophet Jeremiah’s woes? His testimony is the 25th book of God's Word, and it is called Lamentations. Does that title suggest anything to you? It is the cry of a troubled soul. It is the testimony of a man who knew pain, weakness, and much sorrow. As you turn to Lamentations 3 -- let me briefly sketch the life of this incredible servant of God. Jeremiah must have had an incredible childhood. The Scriptures tell us God had chosen him before his birth to be a prophet. His family was notable in their service for the LORD. Life was exciting for the son of a high priest. Jeremiah 1:1 The words of Jeremiah, the son of Hilkiah, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, (NASB) One of the great blessings of Jeremiah’s life was that his dad was the one who found the lost book of the Law. How Jeremiah’s love for the Word showed through in his life as God’s prophet. He was the “son of Hilkiah” (Jer. 1:1) and as 2 Kings 22:8 records: “And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.” WNS-49 - His Great Faithfulness In Our Great Suffering (090322PM)." from video introduction
