(God Doesn’t Want You to Cry Anymore)
TO THE BIBLE – Isaiah 65:19 CEV
“I will celebrate with Jerusalem and all of its people; there will be no more crying or sorrow in that city.”
Ella was diagnosed with a terrible disease and given only six months to live. She was completely devasted and felt her world had suddenly come to an end. She cried bitterly without hope, and even contemplated suicide. Then, somehow, she got a hold of one of our books titled, “Healing from Heaven.” She studied it from cover to cover, and faith for her healing was stirred in her spirit. She put her faith to work and began to declare that she was healed. After some time, she went back for another test, and there was no trace of the disease in her body! Ella couldn’t stop rejoicing and thanking God for her miracle. Now, instead of sorrow and tears, she was full of joy and laughter.
You don’t need to cry anymore; that’s what Jesus came to put an end to! He has settled any and every situation that should make you cry. He knows what you’re going through and He’s given you His Word and His Spirit to help you come through victoriously. So stop crying!
Isaiah 53:1-12 tells us how much He suffered for our sakes; He suffered your shame, took your pains upon Himself and gave you His glorious life. When He said, “It is finished,” just before He gave up the ghost on the cross of Calvary, He meant the time of weeping was over. Hallelujah!
Nothing, no one, no weapon anywhere can put you to shame. God is with you; therefore, you have no cause to worry. It’s high time you stopped throwing pity-parties, and woke up to the reality of God’s Word. So wipe your tears and take up the Sword of the Spirit – the Word of God – to put the enemy to flight and effect the changes you desire in your life.
Isaiah 25:8; Jeremiah 31:16
Thank you Father for giving me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. I refuse to cry or sorrow, but I rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory as I behold my victory in your Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
