Today's reading: Psalm 56:8-11

Psalm 56:8 always touches my heart and brings a smile to my face because it reminds me of how acutely aware God is of every detail of my life (and yours as well). How amazing to know that God keeps track of each one of our tossings and doesn't simply see our hurts and concerns but also collects our tears in His bottle.

"You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?" (Psalm 56:8)

How does knowing that God is aware of every one of your hurts and concerns (counting your tossings, collecting your tears and recording them in His book) encourage you? What does this verse convey about how much God loves, cares for and values you? Tami

Tami,

It thrills my aching heart to know that God cares that much for His children!
I stopped by the Treasury of David and was blessed as I read the following:


Verse 8. Are they not in thy book? While we remain in this vale of misery, God keeps all our tears in a bottle; so precious is the water that is distilled from penitent eyes; and because he will be sure not to fail, he notes how many drops there be in his register. It was a precious ointment wherewith the woman in the Pharisee's house (it is thought Mary Magdalene) anointed the feet of Christ; but her tears, wherewith she washed them, were more worth than her spikenard. Abraham Wright, in "A Practical Commentary or Exposition upon the Book of Psalms," 1661.

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son!

Hi Tami,
How awesome it is to know that no matter what I've done, no matter how many times I've disappointed the God we serve, He yet continues to love me. This Psalm reminds me of John 3:16,"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him would have ever lasting life. Even in the midst of my mess, God did not give up on me. What an awesome God we serve!
