“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in the spirit.”Psalm 34:18
God is not hidden from you. To the contrary, His is everywhere you go. He sees you, hears you, and loves you. Even in the hard times, God is constant love and comfort.
When you are hurting and in despair, His heart breaks for you. However, He is able to come to your aid and rescue, when you call His name! He is a loving and faithful God who does not cause the pain or the sorrows of this world. Instead, if you allow Him to, it is His desire to take the pain away and replace it with joy.
While loving God and allowing Him to love you does not mean that the pain or hard times will cease, His presence will make life so much easier to bear all that you are facing. Please understand, God does not intend for you to be afraid or to walk alone in this world. In fact, it is His desire to be there with you and walk through life with you. All you have to do is ask and invite Him in!
As you walk with God, things will happen that you don’t understand, but He understands all things. Therefore, allow His loving presence to give you peace in the midst of every storm. Rest in His mercy that will be upon you, and allow your heart to trust in Him alone.
Seek His peace, love, and joy. Seek to have knowledge and understanding of who He is, through His Holy Word. This is all available to you, today and every day of your life. Taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 33:8)!
“I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”Psalm 34:4
Amen. Be blessed. Yours, in Christ.
