Blessed Are Those Who Mourn

Matthew 5:4 NKJV … Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5:4 MSG … You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.

Those who mourn[3996] = Synonym for: To Grieve[5932]
Grief manifested, so great that it cannot be hid. Usually accompanied by weeping/ loud wailing

Mark 16:10She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned[3996] and wept[2799].

These shall be comforted.

John 14:15-18 KJV … If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Lord when my heart is heavy, weighed down with grief; please help me to remember Your promise to come to me. Thank You Lord Jesus that You are our Comforter. You come along side to comfort and encourage those who belong to You. Help me to remember to look for and receive Your embrace. Thank You that after receiving the comfort that only You can give, we will be able to comfort others in Your name, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of sympathy (pity and mercy) and the God [Who is the Source] of every comfort (consolation and encouragement), Who comforts (consoles and encourages) us in every trouble (calamity and affliction), so that we may also be able to comfort (console and encourage) those who are in any kind of trouble or distress, with the comfort (consolation and encouragement) with which we ourselves are comforted (consoled and encouraged) by God. -2Cor 1:3-4 AMP
