God: receptor of tears….
Psalm 120 (KJV “In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and He heard me. Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue”.
It was to my benefit that I was able to see something which caused me to be very reflective in the basic nature of humans. Folks will do or say things in an unguarded moment to protect themselves, even if it means hurting someone else; the act in itself might not be intentional, but it is a safeguard meant to protect.
No matter the reason behind it, someone will be hurt by these actions and at times it can be more than one individual facing deep hurt. Consider if you have ever been in such a predicament and think on how the writer of the Psalms was distraught to the point that he cried out to God for a release.
At times the acts or deed can be so egregious that alleviating it in the physical realm is impossible and you need to cry out to God in the name of His son our Savior to come quickly and do something, not even about the situation, but about the pain your heart is undergoing.
At times the relief comes quickly, but depending on the relationship, these hurts can make you feel as if your heart is being ripped from your inner being. The Psalmist had no choice but to be direct in the aspect of where the hurt was coming from, identify the problem and suggest the resolution.
When we partner with God, having a relationship where we can communicate effectively is one of the benefits that come with this partnership. Talk to your Father; nothing will surprise Him and your innermost thoughts are welcome as sharing is reflective of what is expected for the relationship to grow.
Alternately, who else can you go to for this relieve and restoration but Jesus? Beloved you don’t have to carry this load alone; Jesus is just a cry away and when His people cries, He listens and He answers.
Let your cries be heard today.
