The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him. (Nahum 1:7)
Sometimes trouble lands up in our lives without giving any notice. It may have been brewing for a while, but there you are in the thick of it suddenly. So what’s to be done? A hurricane hits you mentally and pain like that associated with a sharp upper cut from the boxer's glove numbs you into silence.
Surprisingly, the very center of a hurricane, called the eye is usually totally calm. This is directly surrounded by the eye wall which is where the fastest wind speeds are found.
The presence of Jesus is like the eye of the hurricane while surrounding are the howling winds of trouble. There's calm and peace; an assurance that everything will be fine.
And will he save? You bet, he will. He is mighty to save.
The Psalmist says,
For he stands at the right hand of the needy one, to save his life from those who condemn him. (Psalm 109:31)
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me. (Psalm 138:7)
The Bible says, The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." (Zephaniah 3:17)
So let’s say aloud with faith what we read in the title verse here: The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him
