“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
– Revelation 21:4
“Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can’t heal” are lyrics from Crowder’s hit song: Come As You Are
Those who have sorrow, pain and crying here on earth can be comforted knowing that there will be a day when we will feel none of these things – in Heaven. But God has given us the strength to fight through sorrow and pain on this earth.
As believers, we are in the Kingdom today. Joshua 1:9 says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
But how does this apply to our everyday lives? How does it apply to real life sorrow, due to death, loss or sickness? Philippians 4:6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Prayer. Solemn, humble prayer is what we are commanded to have. Let God know your requests. Speak to Him and ask for His help. We cannot do this on our own. And we are not expected to. We are strengthened through a relationship with God by studying, reading the Word. And we speak to Him, humbly in prayer, asking for help with our sorrow. That is the application. No matter what happens, continue trusting in Him even though things might feel out of control. He is on the throne. He has overcome the world.
