Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - July 13

Jesus Weeps with You

In all their affliction He was afflicted; . . . in His love and in His pity He redeemed them.

Isaiah 63:9, nkjv

When was the last time you wept into your pillow at night, thinking no one cared? Is the pain so deep and your hurt so great that you cry night after night? In your misery and loneliness, do you think Jesus is emotionally detached? That He just doesn’t care? Or that He’s simply too busy to notice? Or that He is somewhat callous since He sees a lot of pain that’s worse than yours? Or that He couldn’t possibly understand how you feel? Or that He’s not concerned enough to meet your needs?

Did you know that Jesus weeps with you? Did you know He puts all your tears in a bottle because they are precious to Him? (Ps. 56:8, nkjv) He has said in all of your afflictions, He Himself is afflicted. Why? Because Heunderstands! And He loves you!

Your suffering is His.
          Your grief is His.
                    Your tears are on His face!
