Tears do not mean you are weak, Beloved. Weeping may endure for the night, but joy is coming in the morning.
I see every tear you cry and I AM filled with compassion for you. I AM well acquainted with your griefs and sorrows. Your tears are recorded in My book and kept in My Bottle.
Those tears stand as a mighty and everlasting witness against the enemy. For he is the one who comes to steal, kill, and destroy.
Some of my greatest warriors wept, Dear One. It is because of My Spirit in you that you feel things so much. I have made you this way. For when you realize you are weak, then My POWER rests on you.
My Strength is made perfect in your weakness. Keep fighting the good fight of faith, My Warrior Bride. My Grace is sufficient for you. You who sow in tears shall reap in joy and singing. And I shall wipe every tear from your eyes.
“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me,” 2 Corinthians 12:9.
“Then David and the people who were with him lifted their voices and wept until there was no strength in them to weep,”1 Samuel 30:4.
“You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle, are they not in Your book?” Psalms 56:8.
“for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their Shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes,” Revelation 7:17.
“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 former things have passed away,” Revelation 21:4.
“They who sow in tears shall reap in joy and singing. He who goes forth bearing seed and weeping, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him,” Psalms 126:5-6.
