    It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his
    compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy
    faithfulness. Lam. 3:22, 23

    The faithful prophet was daily strengthened to endure. “The Lord is
    with me as a mighty terrible one,” he declared in faith; “therefore my
    persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be
    greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion
    shall never be forgotten.” “Sing unto the Lord, praise ye the Lord: for
    He hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of the evildoers.”
    The experiences through which Jeremiah passed in the days of his youth
    and also in the later years of his ministry taught him the lesson that
    “the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to
    direct his steps.” He learned to pray, “O Lord, correct me, but with
    judgment; not in Thine anger, lest Thou bring me to nothing.”

    When called to drink of the cup of tribulation and sorrow, and when
    tempted in his misery to say, “My strength and my hope is perished from
    the Lord,” he recalled the providences of God in his behalf, and
    triumphantly exclaimed, “It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not
    consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning:
    great is Thy faithfulness. “

    Many professed Christians dwell too much on the dark side of life,
    when they might rejoice in the sunshine; they repine when they should be
    glad; they talk of trials when they should offer praise for the rich
    blessings they enjoy. They look at the unpleasant things, hoard up the
    disappointments, and sigh over the griefs, and, as a consequence, grow
    heavyhearted and sad, when, should they count up their blessings, they
    would find them so numerous that they would forget to mention their
    annoyances. If they would every day take note of the favors that are
    done them; if they would store their minds with the precious memory of
    kindnesses received, how much occasion they would find to render thanks
    and praise to the Giver of all good.
