there when we call

Lamentations 3:57-63 (JDV)

Lamentations 3:57 You came near whenever I called you; you said, “Do not be afraid.”
Lamentations 3:58 You championed my cause, Lord; you redeemed my life.
Lamentations 3:59 Yahveh, you saw the wrong done to me; judge my case.
Lamentations 3:60 You saw all their vengefulness, all their plots against me.
Lamentations 3:61 Yahveh, you heard their insults, all their plots against me.
Lamentations 3:62 The slander and murmuring of my opponents attack me all day long.
Lamentations 3:63 When they sit and when they get up, look, I am ridiculed by their songs.

there when we call

The Lamenter’s God is not a distant, remote idea. He is a God who comes near when we call, who redeems the life of those about to die, who sees every wrong done, and hears every insult, plot, slander and murmuring.

That’s why the Lamenter can confidently draw near to God and request deliverance — not only for himself, but for his beloved city.

Lord, thank you for being there when we call — there to rescue.
