Psalm 34:18 – “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.”
Our God is a good God, a wonderful Father, compassionate, slow to get angry, quick to forgive, full of mercy and unfailing love. His eyes are constantly searching the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him. And when He sees those hearts, He comes close to them! Praise Him, for His endless goodness!
He delights in our humility, He sees us when we are crushed in spirit, discouraged, when we have given up hope, and He gently sets Himself right there where we most need.
In times of hurt and pain, when we feel lonely and have lost hope, we must believe that the One who made us is right beside us. He holds us if we are so broken and He puts us back together with his love, and He brings us hope.
He saves us from ourselves, our hurt, our pain and takes us into His arms, He hides and protects us, into His shelter and refuge.
Stay near to God, seek Him continuously, praise and exalt Him – even when you don’t feel like it – because He is for sure near you!
