ENCOURAGEMENT, WHEN DROPPED BY RELIGIOUS FRIENDS IN TIMES OF NEED

Posted on July 17, 2011 at 10:01 AM

Compassion With Action Luke 7:13 13When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” My friend, there is no trial, difficulty or challenge we face today that our Lord Jesus cannot identify with. The moment we experience a trial, right there and then, because He “was in all points tempted as we are” (Hebrews 4:15), He feels it too and is able to sympathize with our weaknesses. Jesus’ compassion for you is the same compassion He felt for the widow at Nain when He saw the dead body of her only son being carried out of the city gate to be buried. (Luke 7:11–15) It must have been terrible for her to experience the death of her only son after having already experienced the death of her husband. What a horrible thought to be left all alone in the world with no means of support! When Jesus saw her, He was moved with compassion and said to her, “Do not weep.” Now, some religious leaders might also be moved to approach her, but only to say, “Look sister, something is terribly wrong. Your husband died. Now, your only son has died. You must find out what is wrong. You better ask God what sin you have committed and repent. Or perhaps there is a curse in your life that needs to be broken.” Isn’t it beautiful that Jesus did not extend more confusion or condemnation toward her? He only extended His compassion to her, telling her, “Don’t weep.” This same Jesus will also come to you when you are most distraught and say, “Don’t cry.” And Jesus’ sympathy does not stop at “Oh, you poor thing! I am so sorry about what has happened to you.” No, His sympathy will move Him to give you the miracle you need in your life. That is why He raised the widow’s son back to life! Beloved, rest in the truth that He who is seated at the Father’s right hand today understands what you are going through and sympathizes with your weaknesses. The compassion of Jesus toward you causes Him to breathe life into your dead situation and turn it around for your good! JOSEPH PRINCE I COULD NEVER HAVE SAID IT BETTER. THE LORD SPOKE TO ME ABOUT THE FRIENDS OF JOB. THEY WERE RELIGIOUS AND DID NOT UNDERSTAND GRACE. BUT THE LORD ALSO SAW THAT AND SHOWED JOB GRACE BY HIS MIGHTY WORKS. THEN JOB SAID, THAT HE HEARD ABOUT GOD FROM OTHER PEOPLE....BUT NOW HE (JOB) HAS SEEN GOD. GOD TOLD JOB TO PRAY FOR HIS FRIENDS. DON'T CONFRONT THEM....JUST PRAY FOR THEM, SO THAT THEY ALSO WILL SEE GOD IN HIS MIGHTY AND GLORIOUS GRACE. GOD WILL BLESS YOU MIGHTILY. NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. BUT BECAUSE OF HIS GRACE (UNMERITED FAVOR) SHALOM MY DEAR FRIENDS ELMARIE
