Our Quick Devotion this morning comes from Matthew 5:4 (NKJV)
“Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.”
It’s so comforting to know that the God we serve isn’t aloof to our pain but rather cares about our struggles and promises to provide us comfort in the midst of our mourning. In Hebrews we read that because Jesus was suffered and was tempted he is able to help those who are tempted.
In the following verses in Corinthians we read that Jesus comforts us so that we are able to also comfort those who are also struggling.
2nd Corinthians 1:3-4
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
