When Jesus saw her weeping and saw the other people wailing with her, a deep anger welled up within him, and he was deeply troubled. . . Then Jesus wept. John 11:33,35 (NLV)
And God replied . . . “I keep track of all your sorrows. I have collected all your tears in you’re bottle and I have recorded each on in my book.” Psalm 56:8 (NLV)
And Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29 (NLV)
And Jesus said: “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” John 14:1-3 (NLV)
And God said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NLV)
God sees our sorrow, He knows every tear we’ve cried and every prayer we’ve prayed.
Isaiah, the prophet says this about God who became flesh and dwelt among us (Jesus).
There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance,
nothing to attract us to him.
He was despised and rejected—
a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.
We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.
He was despised, and we did not care.
Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;
it was our sorrows that weighed him down.
And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,
a punishment for his own sins!
crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
God understands our pain, He hears our questions in times of great need and He answers!
God offers you a free gift – you cannot earn it, you are not born into the right family to receive it. Each individual must accept God’s free gift for themselves.
Each one of us has sinned and gone our own way and our just payment is eternal death. But God sent His Son Jesus to take our punishment and die in our place! And when we acknowledge that we are a sinner and invite Christ to come into our lives and save us from our sins, we now become one of His children and carry the promise of spending eternity with Him in our hearts.
If you have never accepted this free gift, I urge you not to wait. He stands ready and waiting to come into your life and make you NEW!
