Psalm 34:17-18 reminds us, ‘The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.’ (NKJV) When we feel overwhelmed, we can find solace in knowing that God is near to us, ready to comfort and save us.
Prayer is a powerful tool to encourage our faith. By maintaining a consistent and heartfelt connection with God through prayer, we invite His presence into our lives, seeking His guidance and finding renewed strength in our faith journey.
It's crucial to surround ourselves with fellow believers. Being part of a supportive Christian community can provide encouragement, accountability, and a sense of belonging. Sharing our burdens with others who understand and can uplift us strengthens our faith and reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles.
Quote You are never far from God; prayer is the bridge to a breakthrough.
Lord, thank You that You are near to me. Let me feel Your presence. Amen.
If you feel down, ring a friend and talk through the issues, you will feel better about it.
