"The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." NIV
"The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them." KJV
It is no rare thing these days to be or know someone who is crushed and brokenhearted. If we share with them that God is near them and brings them through the troubled time, it will be a refreshment to those who are downcast. And, if we are broken and crushed, we must believe that our God is bigger than our problems, He is with us, and we will rejoice once again.
Heavenly Father, we thank You and praise You that You are with us always, and that You are near and comforting to the brokenhearted. Help us, Lord, to be open so that You can use us to life up others who are in despair. In Jesus' name, Amen.
