Hello everyone! Just now, I have thought to make a series about the Bible verses that I have read and what is or what was the impact or effect of it to me. I haven’t been missing our Liturgical Bible Study (LBS) sessions recently and one thing I can say, I am very much inspired about everything.
When we were having the bible study, I got my Bible opened and suddenly I have read Revelation 21:4. It had a very huge impact on me and I almost cried while reading it. These past few weeks, I have been experiencing a lot of emotional breakdowns and I have also watched videos and saw pictures about the war in Syria. It breaks my heart, seeing the kids crying, begging for their life and food. It’s very heartbreaking.
I saw this picture on Facebook, and almost cried. It hurts me. And what hurt me the most were the comments, it doesn’t matter if the picture was old or the lines were used already. It can very much explain what happens in there and ugh the people were just so full of negativity so I shut down the comments section and just reflected.
Now, for the verse impact which is Revelation 21:4:
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things have passed away.” – Revelation 21:4 (NIV)
I immediately remembered the picture after reading this verse and it overwhelmed me. Most of us now are hurting, in pain and has been mourning for deaths. Most of us, even, don’t want to live anymore because of the pain that we’ve been feeling. The heart aches, rejections, physical sicknesses, personal problems and mental breakdowns. This verse had reassured everyone of us that the time will come that there will be no pain anymore. No deaths, no tears, no weeping. This had reassured us that He has His plans for us. Remember Jeremiah 29:11?
“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
Revelation 21:4 told me that I should always remember Jeremiah 29:11. If you think you’ve been feeling everything, if you’re overwhelmed, in pain and in suffering, remember that God will take away all the pain and you will cry no more. It’s emotionally fulfilling to know that you will always have someone, you always have God to tell everything and to share him all the pain you’ve been feeling.
Because as I’ve said, one thing is for sure:
God will take away every tear from your eyes and every pain that you have been feeling.
Always remember this, brothers and sisters!
Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see you again in the next post!
