Turn around. Say to Hezekiah, my people’s leader: This is what the LORD, the God of your ancestor David, says: I have heard your prayer and have seen your tears. So now I’m going to heal you. Three days from now you will be able to go up to the LORD’s temple.
2 Kings 20:5 CEB
With all the challenges of life, sometimes we feel abandoned as we cry our eyes out. Suffering, pain, sickness, loss, financial distress, emptiness, lack etc lead people to depression and some to drinking, drugs or idol worshipping because we lose hope. God speaking to Hezekiah says, I have heard your prayer and seen your tears this mean, He has also heard your prayer and saw your tears.
Then tears streamed down Jesus’ face.
John 11:35 TPT. Jesus felt their pain and suffering and cried. This does not mean Jesus was hopeless because he knew the end was victory but he understood what they were going through. Then with a loud voice Jesus shouted with authority: “Lazarus! Come out of the tomb!”
John 11:43 TPT. As we go through the season of pain and suffering, God understands and knows our situation but is not confused or hopeless because he knows the end from the beginning.
You’ve kept track of all my wandering and my weeping. You’ve stored my many tears in your bottle—not one will be lost. For they are all recorded in your book of remembrance. The very moment I call to you for a father’s help the tide of battle turns and my enemies flee. This one thing I know: God is on my side! Psalms 56:8-9 TPT. Keep on going even it seems dark, God hears and is responding although it might seem like he is far, he is on your side. Don’t despair, he loves you too much “What is the value of your soul to God? Could your worth be defined by any amount of money? God doesn’t abandon or forget even the small sparrow he has made. How then could he forget or abandon you? What about the seemingly minor issues of your life? Do they matter to God? Of course they do! So you never need to worry, for you are more valuable to God than anything else in this world. Luke 12:6-7 TPT
Lots of Love
