The Hebrew word for widow is “almanah”. It’s root words, alman, describes this person as forsaken, and, alam, which in the sense of bereavement, means to be bound, to be dumb; literally, to be silenced or the voiceless one.
One of the most profound and devastating experiences of the widow is the sudden loss of their voice. The world you have known has suddenly ceased to exist and is replaced by a vacuum. Does anyone hear me!!
Here’s the Truth… GOD sees you! GOD hears you! GOD cares! His heart is tender toward you!
The Scriptures tell of Father’s heart and compassion for the widow from the Torah laws (Exodus 22:22; Deut 14:29, 24:19), the Psalms, “A father of the fatherless and a judge of the widows, is God in His holy habitation.” (Psalm 68:5), and most directly, “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” (James 1:27)
People may fail you, but GOD will never fail you! He is faithful to everyone who clings to Him! When you feel afraid, He is your hiding place, your refuge! Cry out to Father. He is your Help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:14-16) He hears and He heals. He will restore your voice. Draw close to His heart and He will give you a voice you could never have imagined. A voice of Royalty! After all you are His daughter! (Psalm 113:7-8)
You are voiceless no more!
