The Lord Hears the Brokenhearted and the Troubled

Brokenhearted? In trouble? Here is a verse that might give you hope and courage:

“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.”  (Psalm 34:17-20 )

There are times when we hardly want to watch a movie nor a video, nor listen to our favorite music, nor read an inspiring book. These are the times when we are in trouble or brokenhearted.  But these would have been the times when we needed those hobbies most.

And often times, in my humble experience, a short verse from the Bible can lighten up the day for me.

Have you experienced that?

“The Lord hears the righteous person.”

But Lord, I am not righteous? I made a lot of mistakes in life.  Will you not deliver me out of all my troubles? Will you not help me?What is righteous?

Who is righteous in God’s sight?

But then and again, every time we need His help, it is our chance to make straight with God.  He is a loving God as well as a just judge.   He is our loving Father and a bountiful provider.  He is our God, no matter if we believe it or not.
