Precious Promise #7: Psalm 34:17-18

Does a situation you are facing leave you gasping for air? Does it feel as though your heart is being torn from the very core of your being? Does your spirit feel crushed?

Cry to God, your Lord! He is listening. He is ready. He hears. 

In the midst of the reeling in your spirit... He is there. In the very middle of the torture of your heart... He is present. In what feels like chaos of your mind to sort it all out... He remains.

He is close. He's in the business of rescuing. Cling tightly to Him and His promises. He has not left you to endure this alone! He hears, He sees, He helps and He will rescue!

He is our Hope!

Psalm 34:17-18

(New Living Translation)
The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

Is anyone crying for help? God is listening, ready to rescue you. If your heart is broken, you'll find God right there; if you're kicked in the gut, he'll help you catch your breath.
