The LORD is good. When trouble comes, he is a strong refuge.
And he knows everyone who trusts in him.
But he sweeps away his enemies in an overwhelming flood.
He pursues his foes into the darkness of night.
NAHUM 1:7-8 NLT
When perplexing cares depress your mind, I will be your lilting song.
Nagging doubts will not fragment you—I am your Blessed Assurance.
When you feel you cannot take another step, I will be your cheering coach.
Life’s grueling marathon will not kill you—I am your Enduring Example.
When I flood earth with judgment, I will be your calm and quiet harbor.
Surrounding troubles will not drown you—I am your Grand Support.
When all hell breaks loose, I will be your Unfailing Savior.
Doomsday will not destroy you—I am your Heaven.
When the world has given up hope, I will be your melody of optimism.
Despair will not overwhelm you—I am your Home.
When righteous indignation makes earth quake, I will be your Faithful Friend.
Vindication against sin will not touch you—I am your Father.
When the last battle rages, I will be your ultimate victory.
Clash of good and iniquity will not defeat you—I am your King.
When the night of evil overshadows the world, I will be your shining light.
Attacks from demonic forces will not intimidate you—I am your Shield.
When the world is falling apart, I will be your solid rock.
Fading tangibles will not devastate you—I am your Eternal Life.
When My Son returns to set the world right, I will be your bold courage.
An interview with Me will not embarrass you—I am your Defense Counsel.
When heaven’s holy holocaust incinerates earth, I will be your storm shelter.
Falling stars will not scare you—I am your Bright Morning Star.
When godless nations rage against the Messiah, I will be your hiding place.
Punishment of the wicked will not hurt you—I am your Mighty Fortress.
