Tears are A Language

Ps 56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: [are they] not in thy book?

As we journey along in this life, we face many roadblocks that we didn't expect. I am thankful to be a child of the King this morning. As I look out in this world today I don't see how the lost make it with out Jesus. If I didn't have Jesus I would be worried about everything. People are losing their jobs left and right, gas is outrageous, food is going up as alarming rate, but as a child of God we have a promise that God will take care of us. I believe we as Christians to examine where we are at with the Lord because soon I believe are churches are going to be bombarded with people looking for answers. Now to the thought for today. Have you ever as a child of God went to God in prayer and all that came out was tears?

We sometimes feel that we are in a hopeless situation and all we can do is go to God and cry our eyes out but you know what God knows what we need during these times. We live in a world that it seems like our heart is broken often. I as a Pastor have already experience this even in my church as you pray and seek the Lord and try to love people but still they turn there back on the Lord this breaks my heart and all I want to do is go to God and cry. I have been saved for almost 15 years and I know many parents that i have had contact with who have had a child decide they know better than God and go do there own thing. Some come back to the Lord but many have not as this point. What do you tell those parents what kind of words can you comfort people with when they go through things like that? All I can say is God knows and he understands and he is still in control. I have told the church often that sometimes you can come to me and we can weep together, laugh together, rejoice together, but sometimes there is nothing I will be able to say or do and all you will be able to do is go before God and pour your heart out before him. Maybe this is what has happen to us maybe we have become so heart hearted that we have lost are tears. People use to weep over sinners being lost and going to Hell like Ps 126:56 tells us but now people really don't care. You use to have people weep over where they are at with the Lord but now, most people are so apathetic to the things of God they really don't care where they are at with the Lord. We have a nation that is on a downward spiral going to Hell, yet most Christians never pray for this nation or its leaders.

To close I am thankful when I don't know what to say, and all I can do is just approach the throne that God knows what my tears are saying. We need to be broken over sinners going to hell, we need to be broken about backsliders that are away from God, and we need be broken over this country. May God bless you till next time.

Great post Bro. Tim!! I know that there have been MANY times that all I could do is cry when I would pray for someone. What a blessing to know that He understands our groanings and our tears!! You are also right about us getting back to weeping over the lost and backslidden. Shame on us for losing that!!
