Imitate Jeremiah. Lift up your eyes. Dare to believe that good things will happen. Dare to believe that God was speaking to us when he said: “In everything God works for the good of those who love him” (Romans 8:28).
Alright, there are parts of this article that I have to affirm, like God being sovereign. But this feel good post neglects to mention all the times God has been pleased to raise up wicked rulers to judge a people, and also most of why Jeremiah wrote Lamentations—it wasn’t just because the people’s sin made him sad.
I dare to believe that God will bring whatever His people need to sanctify them, and I do find comfort in that.
