Faith Friday: He is close

As I was reading one of my favorite blogs about a family serving in Haiti a few weeks ago, I ran across a verse that I had not noticed before. It has been stuck in my head ever since so I thought it would be good to share.

The verse is from a book in the Old Testament book of Nahum. Nahum was known as a prophet and as you can tell, his writing style was very poetic.

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

I think it is interesting that it says “when” trouble comes, not “if” trouble comes. I also really appreciate the reminder that God is always close – even in those difficult times.

Have a great weekend!

    Very moving verse. Thank you for sharing.

    I’ve been reading about how God is always close, but sometimes pulls away to build and test your character. It’s easy for all of us to feel great, and act well when we can literally *feel* God with us. It’s how we act when we feel alone that matters.
