Words of Assurance: Psalm 34

The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help.
He rescues them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;
he rescues those who are crushed in spirit.
The Lord will redeem those who serve him.
Everyone who trusts in him will be freely pardoned.

~ Psalm 34:17-18, 22 NLT translation
