Jesus Wept

Fixing My Eyes on Jesus by Anne Graham Lotz 9780310327844

Jesus Wept

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. — 1 Peter 1:3

When have you thought, “ Jesus just doesn’t care” or “If God really loved me, He would’ve prevented this circumstance I’m in”?

All these thoughts crowding your mind are like seeds sown by Satan. And if you’re not alert, those seeds will grow into weeds that choke out and strangle the truth — that God loves you, that your grief is His and your pain is His… that your tears are on His face.

At the grave of Lazarus, “ Jesus wept” ( John 11:36). He wept for no other reason than that He loved Lazarus and
his sisters Martha and Mary, and this precious family was weeping. He was entering into their suffering even as one day He would ask us to enter into His.

When your spirit is heavy, when your heart is broken, when your burdens seem unbearable — trust Him. Look to Him. Your tears are on His face!
