Nahum 1: 7-8

The Lord is good,
a stronghold in the day of trouble;
he knows those who take refuge in him.

But with an overflowing flood
he will make a complete end of the adversaries,
and will pursue his enemies into darkness.

 

Bueno es el SEÑOR,
          una fortaleza en el día de la angustia,
          y conoce a los que en El se refugian.

 Pero con inundación desbordante
          pondrá fin a Nínive,
          y perseguirá a sus enemigos aun en las tinieblas.

 

God does know who is with and who is against Him. Some may be able to “fake” there way in this world, but God knows. My only hiding place is God. My only comfort is God. Everything I have is from God, and I can only praise God. All honor and praise to God!

Psalm 77:1-3

1I will cry unto God with my voice, Even unto God with my voice; and he will give ear unto me.

2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: My hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not; My soul refused to be comforted.

3I remember God, and am disquieted: I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed. Selah

1  Con mi voz clamé a Dios, a Dios clamé, y Él me escuchó. 2 Al Señor busqué en el día de mi angustia; mi mal corría de noche y no cesaba; mi alma rehusó el consuelo. 3 Me acordaba de Dios, y me turbaba; me quejaba, y desmayaba mi espíritu. (Selah)

Sometimes it feels like God is far away. He isn’t, it could be we are far away from Him. When we cry out, He hears us. I needed this today, and I believe there are others who also needed this Word. Be quiet and know that God is Lord and will take care of us.

2 Corinthians 1:4-6

4Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God. 5For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ. 6And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

4 el cual nos consuela en todas nuestras tribulaciones, para que podamos nosotros consolar a los que están en cualquier angustia, con la consolación con que nosotros mismos somos consolados de Dios. 5 Porque de la manera que abundan en nosotros las aflicciones de Cristo, así abunda también por Cristo nuestra consolación. 6 Pues si somos atribulados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación; la cual es eficaz para soportar las mismas aflicciones que nosotros también padecemos; o si somos consolados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación.

There has been a problem at times when one Christian seeing another one facing difficulties. It could be a bad medical issue, house burns, car breaks down, etc… The tendency is to say they are doing something wrong. This is not always the case. Sometimes God allows bad things to happen to His people for His Glory. Take a look at Job; he was completely righteous, but he had everything taken from him. He kept praising God and in the end, he was rewarded. Just because someone has cancer, or a child died, or some other bad thing happened, it doesn’t mean God is attacking that person. He has a plan, and it is way beyond any of our plans, thoughts and ideas. Be careful what you say and do; because God will judge you on them in time.

1 Thessalonians 5:14-15

Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are idle, encourage the faint-hearted, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

Y os exhortamos, hermanos, a que amonestéis a los indisciplinados, animéis a los desalentados, sostengáis a los débiles y seáis pacientes con todos. Mirad que ninguno devuelva a otro mal por mal, sino procurad siempre lo bueno los unos para con los otros, y para con todos.

We have certain things the Lord calls us to do. We need to help our fellow men and women in the Lord. when we see someone down, we help pick them up.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Pues el Señor mismo descenderá del cielo con voz de mando, con voz de arcángel y con la trompeta de Dios, y los muertos en Cristo se levantarán primero. Entonces nosotros, los que estemos vivos y que permanezcamos, seremos arrebatados juntamente con ellos en las nubes al encuentro del Señor en el aire, y así estaremos con el Señor siempre. Por tanto, confortaos unos a otros con estas palabras.

Hearing and reading these words comfort me; I pray they do you too! What a wondrous day that will be! We have so much to look forward to. Don’t let this world discourage you.
