Close to the broken hearted

Psalm 34:17-18 NLT – The LORD hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. [18] The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

I really love these two verses and what they say. Firstly, it says God hears us when we call out for help. That gives me great comfort knowing God is always there when I need help. Next it says that God rescues us from our troubles and when our spirits are crushed. Not only does He hear us, but He rescues us when we desperately need Him. Lastly, it says He is close to the brokenhearted. Again that gives me great comfort in knowing this.


Dear God, thank You that You are close to the brokenhearted and when our spirits are crushed. I am thankful that I can call out to You wherever I am and You will hear me and answer. Thank You that You are always there to rescue me from my troubles. Amen
