YOU HAVE KEPT COUNT OF MY WANDERINGS. PUT MY TEARS IN YOUR BOTTLE- HAVE NOT YOU RECORDED THEM IN YOUR BOOK?- PSALM 56:8
God keeps a watchful eye on His children. He has told us that He knows everything about our lives before we have lived one day…so He knows every trial we will face…He knows how severe they will be…how long they will last…He knows every loss we will face and every time that we will mourn…He knows how He will use each of these things for our good and His glory…
When we think that there is no one who sees our hidden pain or tears, this verse shows that we can be assured that God hears our cries and knows our pain and our heartaches. He not only see our tears, but He collects them…they are precious to Him and not wasted. We know that God is near to the brokenhearted. Can you picture the Lord by your side and lovingly and compassionately taking your tears from you? You are not forgotten during your times of grief, sadness and turmoil…others may not be around…people may abandon or forget you, but you cannot say that about your Heavenly Father. Even though you may not feel His presence at times, we can be sure that He is not only aware of our circumstances, but He is lovingly by our side, collecting our tears, recording them and redeeming them.
