In the Text today ( Luke 7:11-17) Jesus told the widow women please stop crying.
Jesus is telling us today please stop crying I am alive, I am here with you. He said
weeping may endure for a night but joy will come in the morning, joy will come when
you realize who holds the joy, who has all the power to give you joy.
This woman was on her way to bury her only son, she had no husband, he was already dead, now this.
The poor lady had to much on her plate, she was grieving, she had no means of taking care of herself, husband
did not have any life insurance (men do not leave your family begging). Jesus knows when there is to much
on your plate, He knows when life is not fair, He knows when life throws you a curve ball
and He cares.
The text says when He saw her his heart broke, Jesus literally hurt for this
woman, HE was touched in the very depths of His heart by the tears streaming down her face.
Jesus knows when you are crying, even when we try to hide them. This lady did not ask for
a miracle, she was so sad that she could not see the answer to all her worry’s was in front
Jesus was there, sometime we are so sad, caught up in our pain that we to can not see
Jesus is here in front of you saying stop crying, I am in front of you. Because Jesus knows everything
you do not have to say a word, just have an sincere hurting heart and Jesus will step in at the right time.
Because when we do not see him, He sees us in our daily struggles and he cares.
Jesus walked over to the casket and touched it and the once dead boy got up and spoke. Wow she never ask Jesus anything but He knew.
How many times has Jesus changed a situation because He knew that you would not be able to handle it.
The accident that your love one almost got into, but because Jesus knew you would be devastated he stopped it.
Just like He stopped the service that day for this widowed woman and wiped the tears from her eyes and heart.
He will do the same for you, mother stop crying, Jesus is on the way; He will meet you where you are.
