THE STORY OF JESUS: Nahum 1-3
“Woe to the city of blood, full of lies, full of plunder, never without victims!” (Nahum 3:1)
Do you remember the stories about life under ISIS control?
Citizens describe it as hellish: beheadings, stonings, forced conversions.
Rape, men forced to fight jihad, young girls forced to marry ISIS soldiers.
Nineveh in ancient Assyria (same area in Iraq)was as brutal as ISIS.
Imagine the joy in those places when news comes of rescuing armies on the way.
“Look, there on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news!” (Nahum 1:5)
This message of Nahum is a reminder that God WILL always defeat injustice.
Evil may seem to have the upper hand, but it’s days are always numbered.
I read these words as an encouragement to ALL who suffer under evil.
For all who tormented physically or socially or emotionally or spiritually.
I am not suffering like this right now, but I want those who are to know.
God hates evil, injustice, bullying, cruelty, abuse – and will set things right.
Hang on, God will come through, you will survive this.
Nothing can separate you from God’s love!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, may the message of peace be heard. Show me where I can be your messenger of peace today, to encourage someone who is discouraged, to bring hope to the hopeless.
