I've just been reflecting on this beautiful verse this weekend...
"The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him...." Nahum 1:7
As we make it through our summer of trials and faith stretching, I truly see the LORD's goodness. He has been our refuge as we've trusted in Him more and more. Difficult times are, well, difficult. Without them, however, I doubt that we would see His hand at work. Without the times where all hope is lost except hope in Him, we might be tempted to do all things in our own strength...by our own might. We might be tempted to say, "Look at what I did," bringing glory to ourselves. The "times of trouble" bring us down a notch, a reality check. Has the LORD been a "refuge in times of trouble" for you recently? I pray that our hearts would humbly trust in the One who is above every name and authority...Jesus. Have you seen His loving hand at work in your life lately? I'd love to hear about it!
Have a wonderful week!
