Feb. 25th devo....Lamentations 3:57 You came near when I called you, and you said Do not fear. I wouldn't normally think to have a devotion verse from the book of Lamentations. Yet when I read through verses 53-57, I can identify with them. I have had moments where it felt like I was far away from God' presence. Those were very scary and uneasy moments. I called out to Him and it felt like it took forever to receive a reply sometimes, yet He did respond. Because of His mercy and loving-kindness, His tender mercies fail not (see Lam. 3:22). His presence, is the safest place to be, and I am so very grateful His mercies are new every morning (Lam 3:23)! Have a great Wednesday!!
