Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Is your heart broken? Are you crushed in spirit? That is when God is closest to you. When our spirit is crushed, we seek Him more, when our hearts are broken, we see Him more clearly. Our God is indeed the God of the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit. It is in your pain that God is closest to us, whether we realize it or not.
In the world we live in today, people are looking to so many other things to heal their broken hearts.
Their hearts are broken because of things that might have been done to them by others or maybe by their own mistakes or sins.
Regardless of the cause of their brokeness, many have turned to alcohol, drugs, promiscuity, entertainment, money, power, materials possessions, more stuff, more friends and the list goes on and on as a fix it tool.
The saddest reality is that none of these can satisfy. They are only temporary fixes that may last a few hours, days, weeks or even months and then the feelings of a broken heart returns.
2 Corinthians 4:18 - So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
I want to tell you today that Jesus loves you. I have a testimony of brokeness and in the midst of it, Jesus forgave me. He took me in as His own when I was broken, wounded and crushed in spirit and called me "daughter" and He is willing to do the same for you.
Are you in need of healing from a broken heart and a crushed spirit? God is a healer! Why not come to Him on today so that He can heal you.
Jesus is calling you on today. He is calling all the wounded in heart, broken and contrite in spirits to come unto Him. Come, all ye that labor and are a heavy laden and He will give you rest.
God's greatest picture of His love for the broken and wounded in spirits is seen at Calvary.
God's love for us is displayed at a level that is beyond human comprehension. Calvary turned defeat into victory for us that day and it turned brokenness into healing.
Psalm 119:32 “I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.”
At the Cross is where we see the power to heal brokenness. Regardless of what the pain is that you are experiencing on today, God says, "I love you" and am willing to heal you as He hung on Calvary cross that day.
Brokenhearted and suffering works for the good. Think about this for a moment. As believers, it is in our brokenness that others can see Jesus in us. When chaos and distraction is all around, we can still praise, worship, reverence and honor God.
2 Corinthians 1:5 For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.
Broken and crushed in spirit? The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for being a healer of the brokenhearted.
I love you all.
