Eat at the Feast
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.
