Nahum 1:7: The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.
God is always good. He is a stronghold in the day of trouble. He does know everyone who trust in Him. A stronghold is a fortified place or a place of security or survival.
When life throws some challenging situations before us, there is one place to go to. We as children of God, will find safety in our God who acts as a place of defence and a stronghold. No arrows or bullets can penetrate there. Nothing will snatch us from the godly protection or the hedge around us. God never disowns anyone who trusts Him because He knows them who trust in Him. Life can be so overwhelming sometimes. We get a feeling that we are sinking in deep mire. Our mind and situation begin to teach us to trust God less and less with every upheaval and stormy circumstances, but those who know their God shall do exploits. God knows those who trust in Him. It means God knows that the person who is trusting Him has a faith that can never be shaken on any day of trouble.
Cast all your anguish and fears upon God. There is hope in Him because He is good. He is good because that is His character. Whenever there is a depressed or a defeated feeling deep inside, be rejuvenated by going to God. Read His word and be strengthened and cling on to Him with a steadfast hope. He trusts you to trust Him. God is indeed our stronghold.
