Chronological Bible: July 6, And the Lord said, “I got you…”
- Nahum 1:1-3:19
- 2 Kings 23:28-34
“The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge in Him.” –Nahum 1:7, ESV
Amid promised destruction to eradicate evil, those who trust in the Lord can take refuge in His promise. He will not destroy the righteous. He will cover us. He *does* cover us. In small moments of the day, I notice His hand smoothing the waves in a situation that could have been much more challenging. I see His hand in providing for others, and in doing so, providing for me. I feel His heart in the wisdom shared with one seeking advice and assistance.
He is not far from His people. And in these chapters of Nahum, amid coming judgment against evil, He embeds promises to those who believe on His name. He whispers ever so softly, “I got you.”
