Hey God, Are You There? Ah Yeah.


In the post Hey God, Are You There?, the question of whether God has abandoned us is posed. Presented were many situations we find ourselves in where we feel alone. In the same passage, Lamentations 3, God answers the question Hey God, Are You There?. In so many Words, God says Ah, Yeah.

I want to camp out in Lamentations 3 because I do not want to overlook what God says. First, it is clear that we feel alone because we want to be alone. God has continually shown from the beginning of the Word of God until the end that He desires to have fellowship with us. He desires to be united with us, but it is our own disobedience or sin that separates us from God. Even in Lamentations 3, the story is the same. Man does his own thing; man chooses his own way; man walks his own path. All of those scenarios show where we walk away from God. Isaiah says it like this “All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”

Hey God, Are You There?. In so many Words, God says Ah, Yeah. Listen to Lamentations 3 where God says Ah Yeah, I am here and have been all along.

22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”

25 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.

God’s great love and faithfulness keep Him committed to us. Undoubtedly, those are two attributes we crave the most in this world. We want to be truly loved, and we want to someone to be faithful to us. The proper conditions is for us to trust in God. In Lamentations 3, He says “The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to those who seek him.” In 2 Corinthians 5:7, God says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

In answering the question Hey God, Are You There?, He says Ah Yeah. The Ah Yeah is sort like you don’t know; therefore, He continues on in multiple places in Lamentations 3. Tomorrow, we will explore God’s answer once more. I am continuing this line because we really can’t miss this point. God is faithful in loving us. Isn’t it nice to know that God is there?
