The rock group? the “Bee Gee’s, have a hit song entitled, “How do you mend a broken heart?” Some of the lyrics are;
“How do you mend a broken heart?
Please help me mend my broken heart,
And help me live again.”
Many, many people have experienced broken-hearts. Maybe it’s a divorce, or someone hurting them or a child going astray or being let down by someone.
The Bible says that the Lord is close to the broken-hearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed” (Ps 34:18).
If your heart has been broken, the Lord knows and the Lord is near. Now how does that happen? How does the Lord demonstrate that He is near?
First, God can do it through His word. God can speak to us through His word. God can cause a verse to speak to us.
Second, God may use Christian music to minister us.
Third, God may use a Christian friend to minister to us. That’s happened to me before. God speaks to someone and brings our name to their mind. Then, that person calls us or visits us and God uses them to minister to us.
So God is near the broken-hearted. Today, if your heart is broken, God knows and God hears.
