No one is cast off by the LORD forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone. (Lamentations 3:31-33)
That is how wide and vast God's love is! What then does it mean for us? The verses that follow answers that question :
Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven, and say: “We have sinned and rebelled and you have not forgiven. (Lamentations 3:40-42)
I love it. Hearts AND hands. The double emphasis is self explanatory. The outward behaviour always follows where the heart has already been! Changed hearts always leads to changed posture of our hands!
