Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
The Psalmist declares in this text that the Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Does brokenhearted and crushed in spirit describes you? Is your heart wounded by the cares of this world or by someone whom you thought loved and care for you? Was it someone you felt you could trust that wounded you?
Many today are walking around feeling lonely and as if no one cares about what they are going through. The Word of God says in 1 Peter 5:7-Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
If you have been wounded, the call for you on today is to look unto Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith for He alone is the one who not only help you, but save you.
If you would take a survey today you will find that many people, including myself, as we look back over our lives, we can tell you that when we truly experienced the reality of God's presence with us was during our period of suffering, loss and pain.
It is in the times of suffering and pain that God is not only nearer to us, but also when we can hear clearly from Him concerning our situation. It may be wait, not yet, tomorrow, now, etc.
Psalm 18:6-In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.
Brokenhearted? Run to Jesus!
Jesus is calling you on today. He is calling all the wounded in heart, broken and contrite in spirits to come unto Him.
God's greatest picture of His love for the broken and wounded in spirits is seen at Calvary.
Are you in need of healing from a broken heart and a crushed spirit? God is a healer!
When life hurts us the most, we are to focus on Christ and the Cross. The Cross is where God experienced His greatest pain and suffering.
Regardless of what the pain is that you are experiencing on today, God says, "I love you" and I am willing to heal you as He hung on Calvary cross that day.
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 our God.
Broken and crushed in spirit? The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Trust Jesus on today. Call upon Him. Seek Him while He may be found for indeed He is medicine for the sin sick soul.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for being your protector, comforter and healer.
