What Grieves You Is A Clue To Something You Are Assigned To Heal – MIKE MURDOCK

Tears talk.
What you cry about is a clue to something you were created and ordained by God to heal. Compassion is a signpost. What grieves you? Battered wives? Abused and molested children? Ignorance? Disease? Poverty? Pornography? Homosexuality? Abortion? Name it.
Be honest with yourself. Caring qualifies you as an instrument of healing. What makes you cry is a clue to a problem God has anointed you to change, conquer, and heal.
Look at Nehemiah. His heart was broken about the walls of Jerusalem being broken down. He could not sleep at night. He could not rest. He wept long hours. He was stirred with everything within him to write letters, contact officials, and even change his personal life to rebuild the walls. Examine Ezra. His heart was broken over the temple in that city of Jerusalem. He could not rest. He wept and sobbed. He read Scriptures to the people. He knew that the presence of God was the only remedy for wounded people. He recognized that places mattered and that God would honor and reward those who sanctified a worship center in the city. Those feelings were signposts to his Assignment.
There is an insanity in our society. Observe how the liquor industry has their signs on every billboard of a stadium. Every newspaper is filled with liquor advertisements. Yet alcohol has murdered and destroyed more people on our streets and highways than those lost in the entire Vietnam war. Someone has said that we have lost more of our children to death by alcoholism than every death combined in all the major wars. Yet everyone screams about the horrors of war while sipping their alcohol at a cocktail table. Someday, God is going to raise up another Billy Sunday or someone who is tired of crying over children’s brains splattered on a highway. Someone is going to be so grieved over senseless deaths that their Assignment becomes clear. Then, that Assignment will become an obsession, and he will rise up to launch a war…a holy war that will salvage the lives of thousands and heal the broken in this generation.
Have you wept long hours over financial bankruptcy and debt? Think of the many families in America who lack finances because of a father’s drinking habit. Think of the children who cannot be put through school because money is wasted on alcohol. Do you weep when you see homeless children? Tears are clues to where God will use you the most. Oh, there are many things that should set us on fire. What grieves you? What saddens you? What moves you to tears? Pay attention to it. Tears are clues to the nature of your Assignment. Where You Hurt The Most Is A Clue To What You May Heal The Best.
