(J.R. Miller, “Help for the Day”)
“He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds!” Psalm 147:3
The God of the Bible, is the God of the broken-hearted.
The world cares little for broken hearts. Indeed, men often break hearts by their cruelty, their falseness, their injustice, their coldness — and then move on as heedlessly as if they had trodden only on a worm!
But God cares. The broken-heartedness of His people attracts Him. The lament of grief on earth, draws Him down from Heaven!
“The LORD is near to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
“He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted” Luke 4:18
