“The God of the Broken-Hearted!”

“‘He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth 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 nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.’ (Psalm 34:18) ‘He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted.’” (Luke 4:18)
