Wiersbe: God Sees Our Tears

“You have taken account of my wanderings; put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book?”1

God sees when we weep. He sees and records our tears and files them for future reference. Among the Semitic peoples, mourners often catch their tears in a little bottle, a symbol of their sorrow. Then they place the bottle in a tomb or casket. One day God will show you the book and the bottle. He’s going to say, “I knew when your heart was broken. I knew what you were going through. I’ve kept a record of it. Now, that sorrow shall be turned into joy.” And every one of your tears will become a jewel of beauty to the glory of God. – Warren Wiersbe
