He See’s YOU!!!

Recently , I taught a Bible Study on the story of the widow of Nain in Luke 7:11-17. Nain , which means beauty, was about 25 miles from Capernaum. Perhaps years before the woman had lost her husband and on this particular day she would bury her only son. She and a band of mourners would walk down the road to the rock hewned burial caves, while at the same time Jesus, His disciples and a large crowd with Him just happened to be passing by. The widow of Nain  is just one of the nameless, faceless women of the Bible. She is a woman perhaps like you at times overcome with devastation, loss and despair. Her last precious possession now gone, her hope for the future now lost in a sea of uncertainty…. She isn’t looking for a Savior, she isn’t looking for a miracle- those days are past… But the Bible says, but yet….. “when the LORD saw her, He had compassion on her.” She wasn’t looking for Him but HE was looking for her. On that day the procession of death intersected with the procession of life and everything changed. When the two collided, the woman’s life would never be the same. Not only was the dead son brought back to life, but her hope was restored. Maybe you need a divine intersection, a divine intervention….  Maybe you today have lost all hope, but the story of this woman says to you HE SEE’S YOU!!!!! He is concerned about the things that concern you. He still is the God of the impossible. Those things that you thought died and all hope of restoration has past, He can shake the ground once more and cause dead things to come alive again.

The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry. Ps. 34:15

    This is a great piece! I can just picture that place where the two roads came together and life over took death. With that in mind, I can’t wait until His life over comes all the different roads that I might have to travel. There is nothing else like the presence of the Lord over shadowing our lives!

    That is an excellent word Karen. I need a miracle or devine intervention in the selling of my house. First, we need lookers. Our realtor is holding Open House this weekend. I am seriusly praying for the right person to come along. I am sure He cares for me in this because we need to get to FL to spend time and also help some with our grands.

  14. Toni Nelson Says:

    It’s nice to know that it isn’t all up to me to look for Jesus desperately all the time. Perhaps he’s looking for me too. Surely we shall meet in the by and by, since neither of us is hard to find. I appreciate that thought, and the lesson, and you. Be happy. Don’t worry.
