A Strong Hold in time of Trouble

Nahum 1:7 says “The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble: and he knoweth them that trust in him.”

The Bible does not promise a trouble free life. The Lord did not say that there will not be days of trouble, but he did promise that he would be our stronghold in the day of trouble. This means that for every life there will be some troublesome times but he will be with you during such times. A stronghold is difficult to attack and easy to defend. A stronghold shields from the attacks of the enemy. In Isaiah 43:2 it says “When you passeth through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shall not be burned; neither shall the flame be kindled upon thee.”

Many are ignorant, of the presence of the Lord and as a result they constantly live in fear. You need to know that the Lord is your shield, your defence and your keeper. He said that he will be with you. Psalm 121:5 “The lord is thy keeper: the lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.” The Lord is concerned about you and your situation. He cares for you , He loves you and above all, He watches over you.

“No evil shall befall you and no plague shall come near your dwelling” declares the Lord. Once the Lord Jesus has spoken, His word will stand. Endeavour to confess the protection of the Lord upon your life everyday before going out and he will be with you.

God Bless You.
