How to Rely on God [Psalms 34:18 Daily Devotional]

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

Psalms‬ ‭34:18‬‬‬

We live in a world that values strength, especially in the US. God’s world works a little differently, though. Strength is only found in God and, as written elsewhere, it’s made perfect in our weakness.” It’s not our strength that saves us, but God’s strength comes to us when we are broken and crushed. His strength makes us whole.

How to Rely on God:

I’m not going to advise you to go out and make yourself brokenhearted or crushed in spirit, but when those times come, it’s important we rely on God. You can do that through prayer and just spending time with God on a daily basis.


I thank you for being so close to me when I feel defeated and broken. Give me the strength I need to keep pursuing you. Help me to always seek you, especially when I feel crushed and broken. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
