His Tears on My Face

The Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces.

Isaiah 25:8, nkjv

God, as our heavenly Father, so closely identifies with His children that our tears are His. This precious revelation of God’s relationship to us is first glimpsed plainly when we read how God called Abraham to leave Ur of the Chaldeans and follow Him in a life of faith, encouraging him by promising, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse” (Gen. 12:3, niv). In other words, God would be so closely identified with Abraham that He would consider Abraham’s friends and enemies His own. God not only loves His children, He identifies with them.

And in response to such loyalty and love, I, in turn, desire to so closely identify with Him—with His grief, His joy, His love, His pain, His blessings, His honor—that His tears are on my face.

My tears—and yours—are precious to Him! How He loves those who love Him enough to shed His tears as they share His cross!

THE KEY TO A LIFE OF IMPACT

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
