Love comes even closer

Psalm 34:18 reads:

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

As believers, we know that he is always there for us. We can feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, especially the more active and mindful we are in our time of prayer and reflecting on the Word of God. This verse, however, offers something extra special. When God’s children are brokenhearted, barely hanging on during life’s lowest moments, he is ‘intentionally’ close to us. Not only is he close, but he takes action in those weak times and holds on to us until the storm passes.

God is not in any way obligated to rescue you. It is not in his job description. He is accountable only to himself. But He does keep His promises.  This week may you be reminded of this, and that God is actively close simply because he actively loves!
