There are times when so many bad and, negative things happen in our lives or around us, and we do not or cannot find the solutions to solve any of the problems.
We lost love ones, we watched the television, and we see millions of people around the world suffered. The blast in Beirut the kill hundreds and leave millions homeless and starving, the coronavirus ravaging countries around the world and millions are dying, children in war-torn countries starving and homeless.
Those of us with empathy feel lost and knowing that there is not much we can do to solve these problems and the only avenue we have to release how we are feeling is to cry. The tears running down our faces may not feel like we are doing anything constructive but know this those tears are healing our very soul and as God looks down on us with tears streaming down our faces, he knows that he has to step in to save the world and his people.
Let your tears flow because it will not only heal your soul, but it will send the message to God that we need him more than ever. The Bible God’s words acknowledge our tears and tell us how the Almighty feels about our tears.
2 Kings 20:5 Turn again and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third-day thou shalt go up unto the house of the Lord.
Psalm 39:12 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
Psalm 42:3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
Ecclesiastes 4:1 So I returned and considered all the oppressions that are, done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter, and on the side of their oppressors there was power, but they had no comfort.
Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death in victory, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.
Jeremiah 9:1 Oh that my head were waters, and my eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!
Your tears are vital whether you cry for yourself or all the injustices in the world. God hears and sees your tear-stained face, and he will deliver us from all these vicious, wicked and evil empires of the Devil.
