Tears are often associated with grief, hurt and pain that makes us distraught, angry and sorrowful. Sometimes we are moved to tears by the ungreatfulness of others; be it the child you work so hard to send to college and they turn their back on you or the spouse you helped and when they got to the top they dumped you.
Now since we are made in God’s image and likeness then it means He feels the same about us when we are ungrateful, unfaithful and turn to other ‘gods’. That makes God cry and when He cries me know it because we call it rain. We cry when one person hurts us hurt us, He cries because billions of people hurt Him by turning their backs on Him, being disobedient and disrespectful in His face with no shame. he wakes up every morning, clothes us in our right mind and most people don’t even acknowledge Him much less thank Him. And the only time they remember Him is when they are in trouble or need something.
Thank You God that You are merciful, loving, kind and faithful even when we are not. We are sorry for upsetting You so severely that it has caused You to pour out tears of rain on the earth and fill the skies with thunder and lightning.
When there is thunder and lightning it means our acts are at the abominable stage, so much so that God has to throw a fit. However, when the righteous cry (be it tears or a shout for help) Psalm 34:17-19 says the righteous cry and the LORD heareth and delivereth them out of their troubles. The LORD is near unto those who are of a broken heart and saveth such as be of a contrite (heart) spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
God’s promise to the Israelites in Exodus 6:5-7 becomes our assurance that God hears our cries and will deliver us.
Also remember the times when Jesus wept. Regarding Martha, Mary and Lazarus in John 11: 1-37 and over the state of Jerusakem in Luke 19:41-44.
