Verse of the Day: Nahum 1:7
“The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.” – Nahum 1:7
This is another verse that speaks of the Lord watching out for His own. However, those who are enemies of His or His own He will address. Look at verses 2-3. “The LORD is a jealous and avenging God; the LORD is avenging and wrathful; the LORD takes vengeance on his adversaries and keeps wrath for his enemies. The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, and the LORD will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. “These verses show that He will not quickly become angry, however, if they do not turn to Him, they will suffer great consequences.
We who are His children, will be protected. He watches over us and when we find ourselves in trouble, He is our stronghold. Think of a great fortress where evil people are doing all they can to get to us, yet we are inside with no fear; knowing they cannot get to us. When the enemy comes against us, having placed our whole life in His hands, he will never reach us for the Lord is our stronghold and fortress. Always remember, when the enemy comes against us, we will overcome through the power of God.
