The Tears of the Righteous

God’s Word declares that not one tear of His children falls to the ground. David said, “Put thou my tears in thy bottle: are they not in thy book?” (Psalm 56:8).

The tears of the godly are so precious to Him that He preserves them. If God preserves your tears, He will preserve you from your fears.

I’ve preached the Gospel in downtown Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. I was told if I did, I could have my head cut off. Before I began preaching, I said that we would sing. The only problem is that I can’t sing. Standing behind me was a precious African-American soldier who began to sing, “His eye is on the sparrow; I know He watches me.” As he sang, tears ran down his face. I wept for joy knowing that the God who sent me to minister to the broken-hearted had numbered every hair on my head.

Be encouraged today. Every tear you’ve shed, you’ve shed worshiping the Lamb, every tear of affliction and stress, every tear over lost souls, every tear over the Jewish people is preserved by God.

Many years ago, then-prime minister of Israel, Menachem Begin, asked me to host a group meeting with him in New York. I brought 23 partners to join me in prayer. Four of them read scriptures from the Psalms. He wept as we read and prayed because he had recently lost his beloved wife. As we comforted him, he said, “Weeping lasts for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” He stood, looked around the room, and said, “The spirit I sense in this room is the spirit of the redemption of Israel.” At those words, everyone in the room wept.

Know this: what you and I are doing to support and defend the Jewish people and the nation of Israel is the most precious thing to God.
