Genesis 6:5-6 (NLT)
5 The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. 6 So the LORD was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart.
Our creator, our God, our Lord, looked down on mankind and saw how sin had taken hold of man�s heart. Man�s thoughts and imaginations were forever looking towards evil. It broke God�s heart that He ever made man and was sorry He had made man that man would fall to sin.
There is a statement that says �The rain falls because the cloud can no long hold the weight. The tears fall because the heart can no longer handle the pain.� There is nothing heavier and sadder than a broken heart. A person with a broken heart is devastated with sorrow. There has been someone who has caused disappointment and caused great despair. Love never walks away; it is a person who walks away and abandons their love. Man abandoned God�s love and it broke His heart.
It may be that someone has abandoned you and broken your heart. It may be that you are still feeling the pain of a damaged relationship. David said in his psalms, �Their insults have broken my heart, and I am in despair. If only one person would show some pity; if only one would turn and comfort me.� Jeremiah upon looking at the sins of Israel said, �My grief is beyond healing; my heart is broken.� In Lamentations God spoke of the people and said, �I have cried until the tears no longer come; my heart is broken.� Many have understood the pain of a broken heart.
If the God of the universe can have a broken heart, let me assure you the Lord understands your pain. God wants to heal that pain. Throughout the Bible God says, �Let their hearts return to me and I will heal them.� God heals broken hearts and restores the joy it once had.
On this Valentine�s Day give your heart to God and He will give His heart to you.
