This morning, I'm speaking to a group of 1,000 people about how I encounter God. As I pray about what to report, one phrase resonates over and over again. In my sleep, in my waking thoughts, and in my attempts at writing, the same phrase erupts:
Go find the brokenhearted. Bring them to the throne of God for healing.
That's it. If I want to encounter God, I go where He is. Scripture says in Psalm 34 that "God is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
If God is near to the brokenhearted, I want to be with Him. I want to draw near to whatever pain, whatever sorrow, and whatever deep despair imprisons the people God puts in my path. I want to journey with them to the throne of God to meet the Healer.
I want them to know the Healer who healed me.
Do you know a brokenhearted person who needs to go to God's throne?
