He Will Wipe Away Every Tear

Rev 21:4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away."

One day the trials of this life will cease. There will no longer be any pain in our lives to mourn over. No physical pain to anguish over and no emotional pain to weep over. Jesus will wipe the tears from our eyes and love us into eternity. There will be unending joy because death will be defeated and life will be triumphant... one day.

But what about today? What about the pain you and I might be going through right now? Pain from losing someone very close to us to cancer. Financial struggles and the disappointments that come from not being able to provide for your family. The thought of packing up all the bags of clothes and toys and everything you own and moving on yet again. Starting over, broken relationships, shattered dreams. These things are real and they happen to all of us eventually. There is hope that one day the tears will dry up, but until that day what do we do?

2Co 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ.

We seek out our comfort in Him. Jesus is our comfort and our shelter from the many storms that crash upon our shores. Not only in eternity but in the here and now. 2Cor 1 tells is that He is the Father of mercies and the God of ALL comfort. He will comfort us when our loved one dies. He will comfort us when we lose heart and don't feel like taking another breath. He will comfort you and me when trouble comes our way unexpectedly. I encourage you to turn over all your affliction to Him. Don't hold back, don't try to fix it, and just trust in Jesus. He always does what He promises, if He didn't He wouldn't be God.

Are you needing His comfort today? He is there waiting for you to cry out to Him and put all your cares and trouble on His shoulders. In addition to crying out to Jesus I encourage you to seek a friend who will pray with you today. We all go through trials in our life and Jesus wants us to be comforted and then in turn comfort others.

Cry out to Him, pray for healing, and seek out others...

Remember the words of Jesus today:

Mat 5:4 "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
