The people of Israel face a circumstance that they have little control over and we see them choose a path that leads to seemingly losing God's presence with them. In the passage, the first part shows how Israel failed to trust God, the second part shows how God keeps his Word, and the final part how God is working even when hope seems lost. No matter what circumstances in life you face, don't base your faith on your feelings or on whether things are good or bad in your life. Trust in God and rely on his Word in all circumstances. God is in control and he is good. So turn to Jesus and trust him.
