In the Day of Trouble

Let this verse speak loudly to you today.

“The Lord is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble,
And He knows those who take refuge in Him.” Nahum 1:7 NASB 1995

He knows those who are looking to Him for protection in the day of trouble. That should take away all anxiety and fear because you know He is with you. He has not left you alone. He knows you are trusting in Him.

A refuge is a shelter and protection from danger. It’s like hiking in the woods when suddenly the temperature drops to below zero and a blinding blizzard rushes in. A voice behind you says, “Come this way. Take refuge from the storm.”

Will you take refuge in Him? Are you looking to Him for protection? Or do you ignore the invitation to take His hand?

“Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!” Psalm 34:8 NLT

“Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! ” Psalm 107:8-9

“I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13 NIV

“For God is good – or rather, of all goodness He is the Fountainhead.”

Athanasius of Alexandria

Pray now and thank God for His goodness and all He has done for you and others.

With Love, Cindy

  1. Thank you for this beautiful reminder of His presence and provision for us in times of need. Your description of the shelter in the storm reminds me of the Scottish bothies which are small cottages in remote mountain locations. Many mountaineers are grateful for finding a bothy in desperate times. That is our God…He is our bothy in the storm! God bless you sister for this encouragement today.
