Psalm 32:7 (NLT)

The Prophet Nahum was active between 663 and 612 BC. For example, he predicted the fall of Egypt’s capital Thebes; as well as the decline of Nineveh, the capital of the Assyrian Empire, located in northern Iraq today (all prophecies, of course, come from God, Nahum wrote down only what God had “given” to him).

“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” (2 Peter 1:20-21; NIV)

Is God your Plan A?

Nahum makes it clear to us that we must put God in the center of our thinking if we want to receive help from Him: “The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7; NIV)

Talk about your problems with God. Find the gloriously liberating rest that you receive when you hand your problems over to God (1 Peter 5:7).

And do not forget this biblical promise: “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” (Ephesians 3:20; NLT)

So, what’s stopping you from accepting the powerful help of God?
