Lamentations - 1

trusting him for justice

Lamentations 3:30-36 (JDV)

Lamentations 3:30 Let him offer his cheek to the one who would strike him; let him be filled with disgrace
Lamentations 3:31 because the Lord will not reject us forever.
Lamentations 3:32 Even if he causes suffering, he will show compassion according to the abundance of his covenant faithfulness
Lamentations 3:33 because he does not enjoy bringing humiliation1 or suffering on the sons of men.
Lamentations 3:34 Crushing all the prisoners of the land beneath one’s feet,
Lamentations 3:35 denying justice to a man in the presence of the Most High,
Lamentations 3:36 or subverting a person in his lawsuit – the Lord does not approve of these things.

trusting him for justice

Anytime a child of God humbly submits to suffering and humiliation, it is an act of faith. It is saying “I trust God, because he will not reject me forever, and he does not approve of what I am suffering.”

Lord, teach us to act in faith when we are mistreated, by trusting you for justice.
