“his heart went out to her” [Luke 7:13(NIV)]
“his heart went out to her”. Whether this lady had encountered Jesus before this moment, we do not know. What we do know is that she was in the process of burying her only son – and her husband had already died. What Christ saw was more than a funeral procession. He saw the deeper plight of the woman and His heart was moved. In his love and mercy He brought her son back to life and so provided for her future needs.
Christ does not just provide comforting words or the proverbial arm round the shoulder. He knows the realities of life, He has been there so He can meet us in our time of need. The ways and means of provision may vary, but be sure that you will not be left alone or in despair as you look to Him for help.
