Today’s devotion is based on Psalm 34:18, “The Lord is close to the broken-hearted, and he saves those whose spirits have been crushed.”
This verse has been a comfort to me when disappointments have occurred and when I haven’t been sure where my present situation was going. The ever-present love and compassion of the Lord have been my rock and refuge many times in my life.
What about you? If you are broken-hearted and your spirit is crushed, turn to the one who comforts and reassures you. Know that the Lord is your rock and your refuge.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Lord Jesus, thank you that you come alongside us and accept and understand our concerns, worries, and despair. Restore us through your presence, grace, and compassion. In your holy name, I pray. Amen.
