In this sermon, Roger Salter examines Lamentations 3:22-33, addressing what it means to wait patiently for the Lord, trusting in divine providence.
“Lamentations 3:22-33 I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.’ There is no state more honorable than waiting on the Lord – the realization that everything is in his hands and his wisdom governs the course that we take. Naked faith is the hardest exercise of the soul – the removal of signs and props concerning God’s favor is something we dread. The author of Lamentations is musing from a situation of utter devastation and the brink of despair. His outlook is hopeless; his feelings afford no comfort. But his knowledge of the Lord bolsters his confidence.”
