The darkness in our world leads to many sorrows. Don’t let this steal your hope. There will come a time when God will wipe away every tear!
God Promises to Wipe Away the Tears
He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever. Revelation 21:4 NLT
Yes, at times, it seems like evil is winning. The terrible things we hear about and experience get worse and more frequent. But, like I said in the last article, all the sorrow is temporary.
As the verse above makes clear, there will come a day when Jesus will return and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. He will erase all these things forever! This is a promise the Lord makes many times in scripture. Take a look:
He will swallow up death forever! The Sovereign LORD will wipe away all tears. He will remove forever all insults and mockery against his land and people. The LORD has spoken! Isaiah 25:8 NLT
Your sun will never set; your moon will not go down. For the LORD will be your everlasting light. Your days of mourning will come to an end. Isaiah 60:20 NLT
They will come home and sing songs of joy on the heights of Jerusalem. They will be radiant because of the LORD’s good gifts — the abundant crops of grain, new wine, and olive oil, and the healthy flocks and herds. Their life will be like a watered garden, and all their sorrows will be gone. Jeremiah 31:12 NLT
God and His justice win in the end! Our hope is in Him. There will come a day when there will be no more tears or grieving or pain. I know it is hard to wait, but persevere, my friend, because victory comes with the morning!
Jesus Brings a Joy Everlasting
So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again; then you will rejoice, and no one can rob you of that joy. John 16:22 NLT
Jesus will return and when He does, He will usher in a joy for those that love Him that can never be taken away. God will wipe away every tear permanently and forever! Amen.
