Close and rescued

November 30th, 2018

Psalm 34:18-19 NLT – The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. [19] The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time.

I love these two verses from Psalm 34. It says God is close to the brokenhearted and rescues those in trouble. This gives me great comfort. In the last 29 years since I started following Jesus I have had a number of times when I have felt brokenhearted or needed rescuing, and each time God has been there for me. He has healed me, strengthened me or guided me out of a situation. To me, there is no greater feeling than knowing the Creator of the universe is with me each and every day. In both the good time and the bad, He is right there ready to help. As Psalm 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.”

Dear God, I thank You that You are always here for me. It gives me great comfort to know that You are my refuge and strength. Thank You for rescuing me and healing my broken heart. Amen.
