Comfort for those that mourn – Part 1
Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
The myriad of problems that have besieged humanity in these present days have placed many into a situation of sorrow and mourning. Some are not only mourning because of terrible experiences they are passing through but those that are supposed to comfort them are rather mocking them and by extension adding insult to their pain. And to compound their agonies there is no one to console or comfort them. Instead they are laughing at them.
I want you to understand that if you are in the above stated condition, God Almighty has seen your plight and has decided to comfort you. Just believe my report that your time of visitation has come. As you know, God is not a man that He could lie, and His visiting is not to console and leave you in your painful state as man would do but His coming is to take the burden away from you and restore your joy. The Lord will comfort you; turn your sorrow to laughter and your weeping to dancing in Jesus name.
I don’t know how long your mourning has lasted or who is behind it but what I know is that the Almighty God has remembered and will comfort you. If you are mourning over spiritual wants, and over sin, I want to assure you, salvation is coming on your way.
Isaiah 40:1-2 “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.”
God has always a message of comfort for His people, even in times of deep affliction. The resultant effect of all His dealings with them is to establish them in holiness and happiness, and fit for the Kingdom prepared for them. In every given situation, no matter the degree of sorrow they are subjected to, God has always designed comfort for His people. As a matter of emphasis, He reiterated His message of comfort to His people when they were in distress under Babylonian’s captivity.
Genesis 21:1-7 “And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken. For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac. And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him. And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? For I have born him a son in his old age.”
As God made Sarah to laugh from today there shall be laughter in your family. Every unbreakable yoke must break today. I don’t know what is making you to mourn and weep, be assured that yoke must break, be it poverty, barrenness or delay in marriage that yoke must break. God has come to cancel your problems and give you freedom.
I want you to know that that your problem will not stay beyond today.
Isaiah 61:1-2 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn.”
The time when it pleased God to show His good favour to man has come. It is the time of Jubilee for the Children of God. Whatever is your problem, I want to assure you that today God is proclaiming comfort for all that are mourning, henceforth, your situation shall never remain the same again in Jesus name.
