TO WEEP!

“.....you shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you” (Isaiah 30:19).

The path of tears is not a permanent one. God never allows you to be tested beyond what you can bear. God comforts you with love saying, "You shall weep no more."

There is a funny story. One king was struggling with many problems in his palace. At that time, without knowing the king's condition a goldsmith met the king and asked him whether the king needs any jewels. The king who was in distress already got irritated and told the goldsmith to make him a ring which when looked upon with sadness should make him happy. Further, the king said that when it is seen with happiness, it should make him sad. The king asked the goldsmith to make such a ring for him.

The goldsmith came out of the palace sadly with frustration that he had brought problem voluntarily. A small boy who was playing outside the palace saw the goldsmith and inquired him of the cause of frustration in him. After knowing the cause, as a solution, he asked the goldsmith to make an ordinary ring with the following words written on its face. "This will not continue. The situation will change" and give the ring to the king.   

The goldsmith did so and the ring reached the king when he was very sad. The words written in the ring comforted the king greatly and made him happy. Yes. God will not allow any sorrow to continue for a long period. Though He causes injury, He is the one to cure the injuries too.   

Dear children of God, He hears the sound of your cry and answers you with compassion. He promises you saying "You will not cry anymore. I will hear your voice of calling and mercifully answer you."  

God will redeem you and lift you. He will wipe all your tears. Let your eyes look up to God with faith. God will turn all your problems for good. The Scripture says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God” (Romans 8:28).

Dear children of God, He hears all your prayers (I John 5:15). The sound of your praise will bring victory (II Chronicles 20:22). “....the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; the rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; for the Lord has spoken.” (Isaiah 25:8).

To meditate: “Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended” (Isaiah 60:20).
