The storm was coming.
An advisory had been issued by the weather service.
Not far from my neighborhood, there is a place where I can look out and see a nearby lake just beyond the trees and houses.
It was the perfect place to watch the dark clouds as they approached.
When the rain finally arrived, I had to enjoy the scene from inside my car.
If I hadn’t had any shelter–such as my car–I wouldn’t have been enjoying the scene at all.
I would’ve been sopping wet, exposed to wind and lightning and the dangers that come with them.
There are times in our lives when we can see the storms coming.
These storms have names of their own.
These are just some of the storms that can come our way.
Do we have to just stand there, without any shelter at all when they appear?
Thankfully, we don’t.
God is our shelter.
Nahum 1:7 reads,
The LORD is good,
a stronghold in the day of trouble;
He knows those who take refuge in Him.
When troubles come, God will be our stronghold.
He knows who is trusting in Him.
