Faithful Friday Faves: Nahum

Posted by Lisa Laree to Beer Lahai Roi.

The repentance of Nineveh that happened as a result of Jonah's reluctant evangelism eventually was forgotten, and about a hundred years later the judgment that Jonah proclaimed was echoed by Nahum. However, this time there was no repentance that stayed God's hand. I have a hand-written note in the margin of my Bible that states that the archaeologists did not find the remains of the city until 1842. Nineveh, as was prophesied, was utterly destroyed.

But the verse I have chosen to look at today is Nahum 1:2:

The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him

Over and over and over, Scripture tells us there will be trouble. BUT...and that's a big word right there...God will take care of those who trust Him.
