Do you want to “become depressed” (Lamentations 3:20)? – Keep on remembering the bad things that have happened to you.
Do you want to be lifted out of your depression and into the joy of the Lord? – Remember this: God loves you.
God’s love is a “faithful love” (Lamentations 3:22). It doesn’t come and go. It doesn’t change with the weather or our changing circumstances.
“The Lord is good to those who wait for Him” (Lamentations 3:25) – God is good, but we need to learn to wait on Him, if we are to appreciate His goodness.
“Be silent” (Lamentations 3:28). Less complaining – all this shows is that we’re seeing things for our own point of view.
“He will show compassion according to His abundant faithful love” (Lamentations 3:32 ) – This is God’s point of view.
