Got mourning?

Do you need to be comforted? Do you need the comfort of your Heavenly Father? Well, Jesus tells us that “those who mourn will be comforted.” The specific word that Jesus used here refers to the mourning that we should have, not over loosing a business deal or the loss of a pet hamster, rather a mourning that we should have over our sin.

So, when we are truly sad for our sin; when we have godly sorrow; when we then humbly ask for forgiveness and repent of our sin; then we will experience the comfort of God. This comfort is the forgiveness given by our Creator and a freedom given to us to live for Him and not for our sin. God will comfort us by releasing the grip that the sin had on us. WOW!

So, do you “got mourning?”
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. – Matthew 5:4

Amen...God is so full of mercy and He is the God of Comfort! He truly does comfort when we are truly grieved over our sin. There are many ways to be sad... sad over self-pity, envy, etc, etc.... but godly sorrow is actually good sorrow because it leads to repentance and ultimate good change in our lives. Romans 8:28.
