The Lord hears the cry of the poor. (Psalm 34)
How comforting to know with certitude that the Lord hears our cries! We know that this statement excludes no one for we are all poor—in myriad ways—and totally dependent on our gracious God! According to the inspired Word of today, it isn’t just that we are heard; we are also assured that the Lord is close to us who are broken hearted, rescues us from our distress, and delivers us from all our troubles. May we strive to bless and thank the Lord at all times! And, may the praise of our merciful Lord, who is so close, be on our lips today and every day of our lives!
