Bitter Weeping in the Night

Read the Bible in a year by reading Lamentations 1 and 2 today.
In the Book of Lamentations, we have entered the broken-heart of Jeremiah. It finally happened, God sent the Babylonians against the beloved city of Jerusalem, just as He said He would do because of the city’s sins. She committed spiritual fornication with the idols of the nations, believing that the nations and their gods could give her a better life than Yahweh God did. Yet, when the Babylonians came in to take Jerusalem, her lovers were nowhere to be found. As Jeremiah wailed,
She weeps bitterly in the night,
Her tears are on her cheeks;
Among all her lovers
She has none to comfort her.
All her friends have dealt treacherously with her;
They have become her enemies. (Lamentations 1:2)
That happens when you associate with the world in sin and then tragedy strikes you. Those whom you thought were your friends cannot be found. The Prodigal Son found out the same thing, which is why he returned home.
However, you can find the Lord always because He is not far from any of us.
