Rescue Me


The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
Psalms 34:18 (NLT)

David could write today’s passage with confidence. He had experienced the Lord being close to the brokenhearted. His own! His own heart had been broken many times. As a young man he was neglected and ridiculed by his own family. As a young adult he had to leave his home and best friend because he was unjustly hunted down like a common criminal. He lost a son at birth. Another son grew up hating him and fighting against him, eventually dying in war. Over and over David had to commit himself to God. When his spirit was crushed God would rescue him. Centuries later Jesus would say, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Jesus promises that He will come and relieve and refresh our weary soul. David knew this about God. Isn’t it time we did? Today, bring Jesus all your heavy burdens. Open your broken heart to God. Give Him your crushed Spirit and let Him rescue you and refresh your soul.

Dear Jesus, I come to You with all my burdens. I give You my crushed spirit. Rescue me. Refresh my soul. Give me relief from my troubles I pray.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
