Nahum 1:7

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble.  He cares for those who trust in him, NIV


I looked up the main words of this verse in my Hebrew to English dictionary:

The Lord is good – pleasing, desirable, gracious, best, right, happy.

a refuge – stronghold, fortress, place of protection.

He cares – to know, recognize, understand

for those who trust in him – to take refuge in

So, there you have it.  The Lord is the best of all possible place of protection.  He is a caring, willing refuge for those who will take refuge in him.  I love the intimacy of relationship that this verse conveys, and I am humbled that my Heavenly Father is willing and able to protect me if I will only seek his protection and trust in Him.

Trust is the antidote to worry.  I will ponder these concepts today.
