The Bible tells us that the Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. One of the most amazing things that happen when we are broken is that God draws near to us. During those moments when we feel like our world has been turned upside down, we get to experience God in such an amazing, personal, and intimate way. We get to experience God and feel and acknowledge His presence in our lives in such a tangible way.
We feel the Father draw nigh to us and we get to experience His love, we feel His hand holding us, we get to experience His sustaining power.
God loves us and He does not leave us; when we need Him most He is there with us, when we call upon His name He reveals Himself to us, when we ask Him to speak to us He does speak to us. God is indeed near to the brokenhearted. God draws near.
When we are in a state of brokenness – in that state where we tell God we need Him, in that state when we tell God we cannot make it without Him, in that state when we tell God we are nothing without Him, in that state when we admit to God that we are weak and that we need Him so much, in that state where we confess that He alone is God and He alone is in control, in that state when we surrender and say to Him that may His will be done; during those seasons, God draws near. He becomes our comforter, He speaks to us, He reveals Himself to us in amazing ways. Those who have experienced it know it to be true.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. Psalm 34:19.
God loves us. He is our refuge. When we put our trust in Him nothing can shake us because we rest in Him, our fortress.
God is not far from us. He tells us to seek Him and we will find Him. We have to have a hunger for God; we cannot be engrossed in the pleasures and worries of this world and expect that a relationship with God will develop automatically. We have to be involved, we have to seek God, we have to obey His commandments, we have to be willing to give up our will and purpose to follow and obey God’s will.
We were created for worship, to worship God alone, He is the only One who can save us, the only One who can satisfy us. God created us, He loves us, and He is ready to be found by those who earnestly seek Him.
From one man He made every nation of men, to inhabit the whole earth; and He determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their land. God intended that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. Acts 17:26-27.
In God we live and move and have our being. God is near to us, He is a God who desires to have a personal relationship with us if we allow Him. He will not force Himself on us.
The Lord is near to us. We should not live lives of just knowing about God, we should live a life whereby we know God personally. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ we were given the authority, we can approach God the Father through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Bible tells us to draw near to God and He will draw near to us.
“Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Return to Me,’ declares the Lord of hosts, ‘that I may return to you,’ says the Lord of hosts.” Zechariah 1:3.
