Our Father Sees

I didn't even realize that I needed to hear this until the tears began rolling down my face.  Thanks, Blest Mommy, for being used by God to minister to me.

The Lord looks down from heaven; he sees all the children of man. ~Psalm 33:13

"Perhaps no figure of speech represents God in a more gracious light than when He is spoken of as stooping from His throne and coming down from heaven to attend to the needs and to behold the woes of mankind. ... When a tear is wept by you, do not think that God does not see it, for "As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear Him." Psalm 103:13

Your sigh is able to move the heart of Jehovah; your whisper can incline His ear to you; your prayer can stay His hand; your faith can move His arm. Do not think that God sits on high taking no account of you. Remember that however poor and needy you are, still the Lord thinks of you. "For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him." 2 Chronicles 16:9"
