When a tear is wept by you—do not think that God does not behold it
"The LORD said: I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them . . ." (Exodus 3:7, 8)
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 wants and woes of His redeemed people.
How can we but love Him—when we know that He numbers the very hairs of our heads, marks all our paths, and orders all our ways?
Especially is this great truth brought near to our heart when we recollect how attentive He is, not merely to the spiritual interests of His people but to their temporal concerns as well. Though leagues of distance lie between the finite creature and the infinite Creator—yet there are links uniting both.
