A Stronghold in the Day of Trouble

Nahum 1:7  

The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.

God is the epitome of good; and to those who have faith in Him, He offers protection and help. He is a refuge, a fortress, a stronghold against the troubles of this world—especially the unprecedented times of trouble prophesied for the end time. No trouble is a match for our all-powerful God.
