Devotional For March 26, 2024

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.
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34‬:‭17‬-‭18‬

In times of trouble and distress, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and alone. We may be tempted to question whether God hears our prayers or cares about our struggles. However, today’s verses reassure us of God’s unfailing love and faithfulness to His people.

First, we are reminded that the Lord hears the cries of the righteous. No matter how desperate or dire our circumstances may seem, God is always attentive to the prayers of His people. He is not indifferent to our pain or suffering but is actively involved in our lives, working on our behalf to deliver us from all our troubles.

Second, we are comforted by the promise that the Lord is near to those who have a broken heart. In moments of grief, loss, or disappointment, God draws near to us with His comforting presence. He is our refuge and strength, offering peace to those who turn to Him in their time of need.

If you’re in a season of distress or brokenness, take comfort in the promises of Psalm 34:17-18. Know that God is with you, and He hears your prayers. Cry out to Him in faith, and trust in His unfailing love to sustain you and bring you through every trial. If you know someone who is in need of encouragement, pass this truth along to them.


Lord, thank You for Your promise to hear the cries of Your people and to draw near to those who are brokenhearted. In times of trouble and distress, help me to turn to You in faith, knowing that You are my ever-present help in times of need. May Your comforting presence bring peace and healing to my heart. In Jesus’ name, amen.
