Comfort for the Lowly One


  The psalms are rich with expressions of human emotions coupled with repeated assurances that Jehovah does listen to the cry of a lowly one who is overwhelmed by emotional stresses. Consider the following stanzas:

  “In my distress I kept calling upon Jehovah, and to my God I kept crying for help. Out of his temple he proceeded to hear my voice, and my own cry before him for help now came into his ears.”—Ps. 18:6.

  “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.”—Ps. 34:18.

  “He [Jehovah] is healing the brokenhearted ones, and is binding up their painful spots.”—Ps. 147:3.
