The Lord is good // 01-02-21

“The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him.” Nahum‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Encountering trouble is never a case of if, but when! We all experience it to varying degrees, and it comes in many guises: illness, natural disaster, harm done to us by others, opposition from others, and then there’s the trouble that comes from our own mistakes and poor decisions. But the presence of trouble does not negate the goodness of God (read that a few times!) He is always merciful, kind, and compassionate, He is a God who keeps His Word and is faithful and true, looking for every opportunity to keep us on track and fit us into His plans. Whatever trouble I find myself in, I can know Him as a strong refuge, I can always run to Jesus, my Saviour. He IS good, He does good and He will work everything together for good as I trust in Him! I believe it 🙌🏼🙏🏼
