His Mercy and Comfort toward our inner-man (soul). When we experience sadness due to difficult circumstance or conditions, it can overwhelm our heart and close us off. There are levels of grief spiritually and worldly. Also, we realize that God understands sadness; for He had to forsake his only Son, Jesus as He hung on the Cross – in order to complete his divine purpose for our Salvation. We are not alone in our times personal sadness.
But we also should not linger too long in this condition (sadness), either. God can and will bring his compassion and peace. He will ease our sorrow and fill us with his Joy. He will ease the pain and replace it with thanksgivings. We must allow Him to tenderly care for the pain and give him the Glory for our healing.
