God is Near the Brokenhearted

Meditations on the attributes of God.

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.

This is the place of deep sorrow for our sin. It is a place where the weight of our sin begins to crush us. It is a place where we may despair if God did not come to heal us.

What amazing grace and love!

Philip
