Trust – No Matter What

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him. – (Nahum 1:7)

This verse of promised hope is found in the midst of Nahum’s pronouncement of God’s judgment on Assyria. Despite His despair over the sinfulness of the people who only a century prior, had repented (see story of Jonah), the Lord still assured those who chose Him, that He would be their refuge and care for them. He is indeed good. May we be among those who choose to trust in Him; knowing His goodness and grace, as we receive His care and count on Him to be our refuge when trouble comes.

 

Trust in the Lord,Trust No Matter What
no matter what comes;
He’ll care for us,
’til our days are done.
For He is good,
refuge in the storms;
He’ll remain close,
protection from harm.
Even when hurts,
come and enter in;
He’ll heal our wounds,
restore us again.
Lord, all our trust,
we give unto You;
may we follow,
all You ask us to.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are good. Thank You that You are our refuge in times of trouble, and that You care for those who place their trust in You. Thank You that when we seek You, we find You, and our faith and trust is grown by Your grace. Forgive us for our lack of trust when trouble comes, and help us hold fast to You, who will never leave us nor forsake us. May we love others with the same unrelenting goodness and grace that You grant unto us, and may many come to know You as a result. Be glorified as we go forth trusting You in all that we say and do. Amen.
