week of Sep 24 - Sep 30 DAY 4

You wonder where I am — how I would allow your heart to be broken.

You question whether I am with you or against you in your pain.

Whether I am a good God.

Believe that I know your pain and feel it as deeply as you do.

My goodness is not measured by your pain or freedom from pain but rather by My presence, comfort and healing power through that pain.

I chose to come down and take on the pain of man so that you would know that I understand your pain.

Your heart is crushed and feels beyond repair, but I will restore it and redeem your pain.

I am close to the brokenhearted and save those who are crushed in spirit.

I heal your wounds and strengthen the weak because you are My flesh and blood, created in My image.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Psalm 147:3

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.
Isaiah 61:1

I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord. I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice.
Ezekiel 34:15-16
