Nahum 1:3 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.
The Lord is sovereign and is in absolute control, even when all seems lost.
Nahum 1:7 The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge in him.
We should not stop to be overwhelmed by the gravity of a situation. We should make our first reaction directed towards God and His grace.
James 1:2-4 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Not only is God a great stronghold in times of trouble, but if we commit and depend even more on Him during these times, He would strengthen us to stand when familiar struggles arise, by developing steadfastness – the property of being firm and unwavering.
Yes, the Lord is faithful and more than able to deliver us from whatever situations are weighing us down. He loves us so much that He makes measures for us to develop strong and Godly character to handle greater difficulties, that He may be glorified.
How can we place our trust in ourselves, or any other thing, any other person? It may seem like an easy choice to make, but with all the distractions, temptations, and lies this dying world throws at us mercilessly with every day, being deceived by the enemy is just as effortless. Stand firm, and do not give in!
Nahum 1:2 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.
Are you about to let go? Are you about to give up? There is hope in the Lord, my brother! There is a way out through God, my sister! I believe that this is not a post I made by accident; Jesus Christ is who you need! Believe and receive Him today!
God bless you!
