Nahum 1:7 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
It seems that I awaken each day with so many things on my mind. I have work to do, children to teach and train, a husband to love and cherish, and the list goes on. I also have others’ needs on my mind. I think about my church family, and their needs both physically and spiritually. There are those who are sick, and those who need to know the Lord or serve Him and live for Him more. I do my best to begin my day at the feet of my Saviour. I need His help to carry the load and to do the work.
Some days, I’m more overwhelmed than others. Today is one such day. I rose and came to my special place, and the Lord was here, waiting for me. He reminded me that in the midst of life’s busy-ness and turmoil, He knows me, and He is there for me to run to. A “strong hold” is a fortified place – a place of safety. I’m so thankful that the Lord – the Creator of this universe – knows me, the sinner that I am! I’m so unworthy and yet, I’m so happy that I can run to Him and be protected. I can receive the help I need to bare the burdens of life by entering His “strong hold”. And, when He sees me there, He knows that I’m right where I belong.
Thankful to be His child,
