QUIETLY WAIT

November 4, 2016

Lamentations 3:26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.

The Bible was written to provide us with doctrine, reproof, correction, and instructions     (2 Timothy 4:16). Thus, when we read the personal stories of the bible characters, we should receive guidance and clearly see a roadmap to success by following the positive steps of these individuals and avoiding their pitfalls.

On this week the above scripture not only reinforced what I previously knew but it gave me additional instructions and encouragement to do better, for this was written by a man named Jeremiah that endured a great deal of pain and abuse while he effectively carried out his ministry.

Jeremiah the prophet prophesied doom to the people of Judah because of their disobedience to the laws of God, and unfortunately, they refused to listen to him and change their ways. So, he wrote the book of Lamentations where he lamented over the fate of Jerusalem and its inhabitants.

In the exact middle of the book, Jeremiah declares there is hope, but you must quietly wait on it. What does that mean? Most of us complain, cry, whine, and become depressed when we are going through trials, test, suffering, and persecution. Instead of being quiet, we usually confess our problems rather than our faith. In his writings, Jeremiah informs us that God responds and is merciful to those that seek Him. Plus, the Hebrew word “salvation” in the above verse means to rescue, deliver, help, or provide safety. So our actions are to be peaceful and unruffled as we wait on God to rescue, deliver, help, or provide safety for us.

The Bible also shares this same thought by other writers. James admonished us to be slow to speak (James 1:19), and Paul told us to study to be quiet (1Thessalonians 4:11). To hesitate in expressing ourselves and to be quiet takes effort, it does not come easily for most of us. However, if the bible instructs us to do something in a specific manner, apparently, it is achievable. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I am more determined to put Lamentations 3:26 into practice, and I pray you will attempt to do the same.
