God Is Moved by Human Heartache

Look at this Biblical text: "In those days Hezekiah (king) became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah said to him: 'This is what the Lord says - Put your house in order ... you are going to die; you will not recover.'" II Kings 20:1-11

Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed these words: "Remember, O Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with whole-hearted devotion. I have done what is good in your eyes." Then Hezekiah wept.

Before Isaiah had left the temple, the word of the Lord came to him: "Go back and tell Hezekiah...'I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you. I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you from the hand of the King of Assyria.'"

The most remarkable revelation here is that God issaying, "I have seen your tears." The important bottom line is that God is touched by our distress. God is moved by human cries and heartache.

The love and life of Jesus is all about that enormous reality—God loves us so much that our distress, our confusion, our anguish breaks his heart. And he gives us his love totally for our healing and well-being.
