25The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
26 It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
28Let him sit alone in silence when it is laid on him;
Jeremiah is lamenting. But his lament is not without hope. He affirms the faithfulness and mercy of God towards His people.
Wisdom will not be gained with many words.
Wisdom will not be gained with persistent inattention to the matters of your soul.
Wisdom will be gained in quiet.
When we find ourselves under the weight of life and God’s hand how squirmy we become. When are you quiet?
Really, when are you quiet?
What are your patterns of quiet?
When do you exercise the discipline of turning down the chatter of the world, and tuning in to the chatter of your mind, in order to quiet yourself before the Lord Jesus?
