HOW CAN WE HOPE IN A GOD WHO ABANDONS US? (LAMENTATIONS 3:25)

Jeremiah steadfastly recognized that the Lord had not abandoned his people, despite the pain of their situation. Rather, God’s people had abandoned him. Jeremiah, theweeping prophet, is also called theprophet of hope, because he foresaw a day when the Lord would reign in the midst of a restored, renewed and reconciled people—people who had finally returned to him.

Jesus knew this paradox between abandonment and hope. In the midst of his suffering and death on the cross, he cried,My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?(Mt 27:46).
