It’s amazing how people can tell you again and again that God is with you, and you can still feel alone. But one whisper from God Himself makes us sure. You can ask Him, you know. You can ask Him to
show you He’s with you.
Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.”
That phrase “contrite spirit” literally means “crushed in spirit.” Have you ever felt that way? Crushed in spirit? It’s a lonely dwelling.
But the Lord promises us two things here:
1) Despite how you feel, He is near.
2) He will save you.
Don’t let the word “save” take on a churchy meaning. Think of God as rescuing you from your loneliness, from your heart break. He won’t let a crushed spirit defeat you. He won’t let it overcome you. Turn to Him and ask Him to save you when you feel alone. He promises to come for you.
