He Cares

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Psalm 34:18 (NIV)

How many people are living with realities that are making them want to react adversely or respond without surrender to the Holy Spirit?

How many people are making decisions out of their pain, striking back at people because they’re so fatigued of being struck, giving up on divine assignments because of opposition and difficulty?

How many people want to walk away from opportunities and possibilities because of anger and disappointment?

How many people want to settle back into what is not good for them, never has been, and never will be?

How many people are thinking about defeating, depleting, and draining things, not realizing that things are about to change?

Jesus teaches us that when these realities bump up in our lives and grip us tight, and you are on your way to bury your dreams, your goals, your aspirations, and your energy, He is saying to you, “Child of God, not just yet. You’ve got to wait on Me. I’m a God who can turn things around. I can make things happen.”

Jesus is sensitive to our pain and our losses. In fact, you are so loved by God, that when your heart is broken, it affects Him. He feels so deeply about:

  • what you feel
  • what you’re experiencing
  • what you’re managing
  • what you’re trying to survive
  • what you’re stewarding
  • what you’re trying to juggle
  • how you’re trying to sift it all
  • and what you’re trying to recover from

He doesn’t leave us out in the cold and anguish. He comes alongside us and meets us in our pain. What an amazing God He is.
