A Refuge in Trouble

Read Nahum 1:1 through 3:19

On a Sunday evening in 2003, a deadly F-3 tornado barreled down on the small town of Battlefield, Missouri. The local Assembly of God church had just concluded services when the alarm was raised. Members of the congregation, along with dozens of residents from the neighborhood, took refuge in the basement. As they huddled together and prayed, the electrical power failed. When one congregant peered out the basement door and saw the vortex heading toward the building, she cried out Jesus’ name. Suddenly, the clouds parted, and the storm’s path shifted. The church and everyone inside were spared.

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

When trouble comes, Christians can always find help and refuge in God. Whether it’s a major crisis or a comparatively small matter, the Lord wants to be involved. Believers can call on Him in every situation, knowing He is good and longs to help them.

Thought for Today: No storm is too big for Jesus to calm, and no difficulty is too small to capture His attention.

Quicklook: Nahum 1:1–8

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
