“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 34:18; Psalm 147:33

TODAY’S WORD…

The Lord is close to the broken-hearted;
He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

– Psalm 34:18

 

He heals the broken-hearted

and binds up their wounds.

– Psalm 147:33

 

REFLECTION…

True believers, when in distress and no matter how desperate and hurtful the situation, cry out to God. True believers see through their own broken heart and tears and, in the knowledge that God is listening, are comforted in a manner, which is beyond understanding. True believers, in spite of their desperation, know that God sees their plight. They trust in Him and faithfully accept that His will be done, however painful it may be to their human spirit.

True believers look at the praying Jesus in the Garden of Olives, and, again, at the Him on the Cross as He cried out “Father, Father, why have You forsaken Me”. The Holy Spirit will then show them the resurrected Christ, triumphant and glorious, and their spirit will be lifted and they will call upon Christ, who will lovingly help them carry their cross and will once again fill them with faith and hope.

 

PRAYER…

Jesus, I trust in You!
