A Crushed Spirit
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
Is your spirit crushed today? Or has it ever been? We know what crush means but to read the definition helps realize how bad it is. According to dictionary.reference.com crush means to press or squeeze with a force that destroys or deforms. Imagine when a person's spirit is crushed that it has been pressed or squeezed so hard that it is destroyed. The bible says that the "LORD SAVES THE CRUSHED SPIRIT". Praise God! If you feel like your heart is broken and your spirit is crushed, there is hope for you today because the Lord is near to you. Perhaps you don't have any faith left but still some how came across reading this today. Or maybe you don't even want anything to do with God and the bible anymore. If so there is still hope for you. If you feel like you can't even pray anymore then ask others to pray for you. Call a prayer line or prayer requests on line. Read a few bible verse a day or listen to a sermon. Please don't give up because the Lord is near to you. Draw near to him and he will draw near to you. James 4:8. This is a promise from God.
