"Break my heart for what breaks Yours"
Some people think that being a Christian means being happy all the time. But is GOD happy all the time? Being near to Him, truly close to His heart, means that we will be allowed to share into the deepest thoughts of His heart. Believe it or not, I believe God rejoices but that He also sorrows and mourns. We see this a lot in Scripture. Sometimes when we want to hear from God, we expect it to be some fantastic thing about His plan for our lives and many times it is! But sometimes He just wants to share the burdens of His heart and call us to prayer or action. There is a song I remember that includes the phrase 'break my heart for what breaks Yours'. Part of the spirit or gifting of prophecy and intercession means mourning over our own sins in repentance, sometimes it's on behalf of the sins of another or a people, sometimes it's a deep true compassion that He's placed in us for our calling. Whichever it is, keep on coming closer to the heart of the Father. There is such great joy in the presence and secret places of the Almighty, there are times of refreshing, stregnthening, and renewal. But to truly know God on a deeper level, don't be afraid of what He desires to reveal even when it's painful or heart-breaking. Also remember though, that God comforts those who mourn, and those who are poor in Spirit, theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
A quick note that I have to mention. True revelation and understanding from God should never cause pride, but rather true humility. Knowing the heart of GOD will produce compassion rather than hardness of heart.
