Reading from the Book of Nahum 1:7
Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
What will you do in the "day of trouble"? I believe we are wise to make up our minds ahead of time concerning what we will do when trouble comes. We need to be stable before trouble ever comes. Decide to stay in faith and remain thankful for what God is doing in your life. When difficulties arise, keep praising Him, and do not ever give up.
Do not be surprised by trouble. Jesus said that in the world we would have tribulation and trials, but we know that he will also strengthen us and enable us to do whatever we need to do in life. God is our Strength, our Refuge, and our Stronghold in the day of trouble.
God knows those that trust Him, and He already has a plan for our deliverance before our trouble ever begins. We are more than conquerors through Christ, Who loves us. One way to explain it is to say, "In Christ, we have won the battle before it ever begins." Our walk with Jesus will sustain us.
