The Holy Spirit was quick to respond ... "I am close to the brokenhearted."
Close. Not sitting near by. Close.
God promises He will NEVER leave us or forsake us, but here is an even bigger and better promise...."Not only am I there, I am close."
Think of when someone is sitting too close to you. Your arms are touching, your hips are touching and we ache for some room to move.
But when God is close, all we want to do is press in. And He lets us.
God is close to you today. Whatever you are walking through, He is not just in the vicinity, He is snuggled up close to you. He is not across the room, He is holding you on His lap. He is not unaware of you. He is acutely aware of your every thought, every hurt, every pain, every fear.
Don't push Him away. Wrap your arms around His neck, hang on tight and don't loosen your grip. He will hold you tight and carry you through.
God is close to the brokenhearted.
He is close to you.
