Psalm of the Day: The Lord is Near the Brokenhearted and Crushed in Spirit–Psalm 34:18-19
“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” –Psalm 34:18-19.
As a believer in Christ, you will have troubles. In fact, the psalmist states that “many are the afflictions of the righteous.” Just as victory is achieved through suffering, sainthood is attained only through fiery trials. But here is the good news: the Lord delivers us from all of it! He is “near the brokenhearted” and “saves the crushed in Spirit.” If you are struggling right now, fear not! God is with you – and He will rescue you. Prepare for victory!
