Sowing in Tears -- Reaping With Joy
Summary: There are times when it seems that everything around us is against us ---- but we can always look upward to God in hope and trust and know that if we hang on in faith --- God will bring a great reward and He will turn our tears into rejoicing.
When this psalm was written the Israelites were totally surrounded by their enemy. They were "shut up" ---- there was no way out whatsoever. There was no way for any kind of life sustaining supplies to be brought in.
There was also a famine in the land and people were dying every day from starvation.
There was no hope for tomorrow being any better, only worse.
All looked hopeless and filled with despair. In any direction they turned all they could see was opposition.
The enemy had not yet attacked them, yet his presence was continually camped about them, causing the Israelites to daily be reminded of their evil plans.
Have any of you ever been there? Your enemy has not attacked you yet with full force but wherever you turn you are reminded of his presence and of his plans against you.
These people were in a perdicament.
Remember the enemy is all about them.
They could not go out and get food supplies and bring them back into the campsite.
No one was allowed entrance within to bring any supplies.
They surely could not ask the enemy for any help; he wanted them to suffer and die. "The thief cometh not but to steal, kill, and destroy."
However, note what Jesus said He came to do. "I am come that you may have life, and that more abundantly.
Let this be our Prayer:
"Oh God, may we be a people brought to tears over the sin of today's society and over the horrible predicaments Satan has left so many people's lives in. May God bring us, His people, to our knees, weeping over all the broken homes, broken because of sin."
