Weeping is an expression of grief, sorrow, or pain (marked with shedding tears).  It is a response to an emotional state.  In some cases, people weep when confronted with negative situations that they could neither avoid nor do anything to change.  Interestingly, weeping does not change any negative situation (at least for good); it can only worsen with weeping.  Weeping occurs in the soulish realm and cannot alter any naturally impossible situation or circumstance.

Jesus Christ was always admonishing people; “…weep not…”  Even when the situation looks so terrible, hopeless, and negatively irreversible as the case in Luke 7:11-16

“And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.  Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.  And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said unto her, Weep not.  And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.  And he that was dead sat up and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.  And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet has risen among us; and, That God hath visited his people.”

Nothing could be more agonizing and sorrowful than a widow losing her only son.  She had lost her husband earlier, and now, her only son means her last channel of support was gone.  The crowd of mourners was doing what they knew best to do in that situation; weeping and wailing.  The widow probably had left child-bearing; the future looked bleak, dark, and desolate.

It was naturally impossible to bring back neither her husband nor her son from the land of the dead.  But Jesus had compassion on her and said to her, “…weep not…”  Jesus knew that the naturally impossible situation of death would bow to His authority.

If you are reading this piece today, whatever you are going through, Jesus can fix it.  Impossible is nothing to Him.  But do you know Him?  If you do not, you must now.  Visit our website, get on the salvation page, and say the prayer there.

If you are already a believer, turn fully to Him, hold on to Him and trust absolutely in him in complete obedience to all His instructions.  He is called Wonderful; His wonder-working power will compel any impossible situation confronting you to scream, “I’m possible”!
