Psalms 34:18 (33:19 LXX)

The Lord is near those who are brokenhearted,
And He will save the humble in spirit.

Encouraging Words

How wonderful it is to know that our God cares for us, especially for those who are brokenhearted. Life can be very difficult and sometimes we may feel all alone in the midst of our struggles. But we can always rest assured that God keeps His promises and here He promises to be near to those who are brokenhearted. Jesus taught us that there are two commandments for us to follow. They are to love our God with all of our heart, soul, and spirit and to love our neighbor. Is it not possible that as we love our neighbor we become God's presence in their lives, especially when they are brokenhearted? Once again, our relationship with God plays out by what we do with our lives. When we live our life with humble spirits it becomes easier to invest in the lives of our neighbors. As we invest in the lives of our neighbors as loving representatives of God, we bring Him into their lives as well as our own. What a powerful way to get to know God deeper and to grow in our own theosis. Glory be to God!
