“The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him…” Nahum 1:7
We live in such an uncertain and troubling time, not only in Nigeria but all over the world. These days, the information we see all over the media don’t seem to provide succour for people. But in troubling times like this – just trust God. You may say, “Pastor, it’s easier said than done” but you need to take your eyes away from the world system and its patterns of survival, and more than ever before put your trust in God. He is your proof in reliability, truth and ability.
The bible says that “The Lord is your refuge in times of trouble”. This means that rather than God providing a refuge (in form of a place) for you to run to, He becomes a refuge that you can run to. He becomes your shelter and protection from trouble. Your safe place, your stronghold, yoursecurity, and your sanctuary. Isn’t this amazing? You just need to trust Him to take care of you no matter what happens. Be confident to know that you can never be stranded in any situation because He cares deeply for you. Have a wonderful day!
Confession: I will not wait for trouble to come before I build my strength to trust in God. I trust Him now and always and I am confident that I will never ever be stranded no matter what comes my way.
