When people cry, there could be several reasons. Cries of joy, tears of pain, touched by words, moved by a kind act or mourning after someone dies. In the famous Aesop fable, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, this story refers to individuals who try to gain attention with impure motives. As for this person, God will not come to their aid immediately, Isaiah 1:15.
However, Psalm 106:44 suggests that a heart felt cry is heard by the Lord. Although you may not receive a reply right away, God’s timing is perfect, Ecclesiastes 3:10-11. Cry after cry is duly noted by God, observing the distress that you and I go through over the course of a week, month or year. Subsequently, each earnest plea is rewarded with a sign, word of encouragement or by a person sent to ease your pain.
According to the Bible, there will be no tears in heaven, Revelation 7:17. Yet, until then, disappointment is a daily reality while calling earth home. In your struggle to stay positive, Ephesians 6:12, don’t try to do this all on your own. Rather, cry out to the Lord, following in the footsteps of David, Psalm 4:1, so that God will come to the rescue.
