The Gift of Tears

by A.W.Tozer


"Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.." Psalm 126:5


The Bible was written in tears and to tears it will yield its best 
treasures. God has nothing to say to the frivolous man....

The psalmists often wrote in tears, the prophets could hardly 
conceal their heavyheartedness, and the apostle Paul in his 
otherwise joyous epistle to the Philippians broke into tears when 
he thought of the many who were enemies of the cross of Christ and 
whose end was destruction. Those Christian leaders who shook the 
world were one and all men of sorrows whose witness to mankind 
welled out of heavy hearts. There is no power in tears per se, but 
tears and power ever lie close together in the Church of the 
First-born....

The whole Christian family stands desperately in need of a 
restoration of penitence, humility and tears. May God send them 
soon. 


God Tells the Man Who Cares, pp. 2-3,6

"This being so, Lord, I pray this morning that You would break me 
and send the tears. Amen."
