Scripture

Nahum 1-3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How does the book of Nahum display God’s righteous judgment against the enemies of His people? What comforting promise is given in 1:7?

Application

Am I willing to wait on the Lord to carry out justice? Do I believe He is good and cares for those who trust in Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father, Thank You for Your love, grace and mercy, but also thank You that You are an avenging God who, though slow to anger, are great in power and will not leave the unrepentant guilty unpunished. You are good, Lord, and I praise You as my refuge in times of trouble. Thank You that You care for those who trust in You. May i never forget that. In Jesus’ name I ask this, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
