“As he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to an heavy heart.”
It is not very wise to be in cold weather without the proper attire. When it is cold outside, it is wise to put another garment on rather than take one away. Being more exposed to the elements only creates more of a need for warmth.
A lack of Wisdom only afflicts us more.
When our hearts are heavy we need empathy and sympathy from those around us. Even in an effort to cheer us up, sometimes a happy song can do more damage than we planned. It reminds us of our lack of happiness and retells the grief we bear.
“For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.”
When our hearts are weary, there is a Comforter for us.
Christ tells us to come to Him.
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
He knows our pain.
“For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
He is acquainted with our grief.
“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.”
Run to Him today. He is waiting with open arms.
His Words can heal your wounds.
“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.”
The best cure for a heavy heart is Wisdom.
1 Samuel 21-22 | Romans 13 | Proverbs 10
