Introduction: The five chapters of Lamentations are five dirges or funeral songs written by the Prophet Jeremiah in his lamentation over the destruction of his beloved city, Jerusalem.
Lamentations 3:25-26 — Divine Deliverance comes to those who quietly seek the Lord and wait for Him, not to those who nosily demand their instant gratification. To be delivered one must patiently and wholeheartedly pursue the Deliverer, not impatiently demand immediate deliverance.
Lamentations 3:27-33 — There is more hope for the youth who bears the yoke of oppression than for the one blessed by the boon of opulence, for it makes one solemn rather than superficial, humble rather than haughty, and obeisant rather than obstinate.
Lamentations 4:11-13 — Although a God-forsaking people may believe their country invulnerable and invincible, God's fury against them will ignite a fire among them that will incinerate the foundations of their fatherland.
Lamentations 4:12 — Though inconceivable to most of the world, as well as to most Americans, America, like ancient Jerusalem, has forfeited its invulnerability by forsaking its God. No longer impregnable under God's protection, we're now endangered by every enemy.
