Tempted by Destructive Thoughts - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series - Arnie Cole


Bible Verse: Psalm 34:18-19

“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time."

Reflect and Respond:

Thoughts can be so destructive, especially when they make us feel alone, guilty, and helpless. Yet today the Lord calls to you saying He is close to the brokenhearted. He has a special place for you. He understands your spirit has been crushed. Yet He promises to deliver. This verse is for you. Today.


Father God, I place my life in Your hands trusting You to mend my heart, to restore my spirit, and to deliver me from my troubles. I do this believing that You are the way, the truth, and the life. Amen.

I am having these same type of struggles as well and I too receive those words in Psalm 34 and welcome them; they are timely.
You may need to check your mind, will and emotions to be able to fully receive these things from our Lord Jesus and His living Words of life. His Word is living and active to the pulling down of strongholds! We may not even be aware of them, but He knows all!! Prostrate yourself before Him in mind, body and soul, mentally if you can’t physically, and give Him free reign!!!
