THE HEART OF JESUS
"The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken
heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the
afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the
wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord
redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him
shall be desolate."
Is your heart heavy today? Are you facing circumstances that to you
seem impossible to bear? Jesus is the Answer to all of your
problems. However, if you notice in the verse, it says that we need
to come to Him with broken hearts and contrite spirits.
There have been many times in my life when I have gone to Jesus and asked
Him for help. He did not help me because my heart was not right
before Him. I was praying against people and not for them.
Search your heart today and see if Jesus is pleased with you. Is
your heart broken because of the way you have treated others and Him?
Jesus longs to kiss away the hurts of your life, but your heart must be
right before Him before He can do it.
