The Heart of the Matter

Allow the Lord to enter the places of pain. Invite Him into every broken area. Let Him be near to you and bring healing in your heart.

Psalm 147:3 — He heals the brokenhearted, And binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow].

Psalm 94:19 — Lord, when doubts fill my mind, when my heart is in turmoil, quiet me and give me renewed hope and cheer.

Psalm 13:2-5 — How long must I be hiding daily anguish in my heart? How long shall my enemy have the upper hand? Answer me, O Lord my God; give me light in my darkness lest I die.  Don’t let my enemies say, “We have conquered him!” Don’t let them gloat that I am down. But I will always trust in you and in your mercy and shall rejoice in your salvation.

Psalm 25:17-20 — My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all! See my sorrows; feel my pain; forgive my sins. See how many enemies I have and how viciously they hate me! Save me from them! Deliver my life from their power! Oh, let it never be said that I trusted you in vain!

Psalm 34:18 — The Lord is close to those whose hearts are breaking; and he rescues those who are humbly sorry for their sins.
