Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“She did not consider her destiny; therefore her collapse was awesome; she had no comforter” (Lam 1:9). In Lamentations, the prophet Jeremiah reflects on Jerusalem’s fall from grace. The city’s leaders did not take God’s plans into account, so the city collapsed; and when it collapsed, the people had no comforter. Thank God that as New Testament Christians living under God’s New Covenant, we have a Comforter! Sometimes we miss God’s plan for our lives because of spiritual blindness. Yet God promises that even when we miss it and fail, His Holy Spirit will be our Comforter. God’s perfect Holy Spirit stewards us through our own failures and imperfections when we rely on Him.

Prayer:

Father, thank You for Your Holy Spirit! Thank You that even when I stumble and fall, You are here for me: to lift me back up on my feet and set me off in a better direction.
