Some of the most powerful healing can come through the most painful of circumstances. One of those extremely painful circumstances is grief but we have not to look further than Jesus and His word for healing.
Mary was distraught and beside herself with grief when Lazarus had passed away. But what she did was not run and yell at Jesus, not turn away from Him, not call Him names or question Him. No, she ran and fell at His feet grieving and sobbing. Humbly at His feet He met her. Jesus wept. Jesus wept the tears with her, He groaned and sobbed the same pain and from here the healing took place. He gave her the only thing that could heal her-His Comfort, His Love and His promises!
“Jesus said to her, Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you would see the glory of God?” (John 11:40)
And one of the most profound miracles recorded happened!
Weep at the feet of Jesus...here lays the comfort, love, healing and promise of hope that with His tears will wash away grief.
