Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 15:5 which says, “My heart cries out over Moab; her fugitives flee as far as Zoar, as far as Eglath Shelishiyah. They go up the way to Luhith weeping as they go; on the road to Horonaim they lament their destruction.”
So the people of Moab were mourning, just like we were (if we accept Jesus as our saviour) before we had Jesus as our saviour, and the reason that we were mourning (spiritually) is because of our sin, if we realize how terrible our sins were (if we have accepted Jesus as our saviour), and the only thing, actually a person, that can save us from our sins is Jesus, because He died for our sins on the cross, thank you so much Jesus.”
So Jesus took on all of our mourning because of our sins, but why would we mourn because of our sins, well we don’t mourn only because our sins are bad, but like David, He mourned also because his spiritual sins were affecting his physical body, ”
A Maskil of David. Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah (Psalm 32:1-5)
But that doesn’t mean that if we have a physical problem that we are sinning habitually, “
As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. (John 9:1-3)
So if we are physically hurt, it doesn’t mean that we sinned for that to happen.
Do you believe that Jesus took away your mourning?
