Nahum 1-3

There’s no need to get too deep here. Too often, people have an unhealthy opinion about the nature of God. Many people think that because He is all loving, He is incapable of punishment and wrath. These verses illustrate clearly, what God is capable of doing, and why He does it.

“…The LORD is a jealous and avenging God; the LORD takes vengeance and is filled with wrath. The LORD takes vengeance on his foes and maintains his wrath against his enemies. ” Nahum 1:2


“The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him, but with an overwhelming flood he will make an end of Nineveh ; he will pursue his foes into darkness. Nahum 1:7

Let’s not take His goodness for granted.

Daily Bible Reading Plan

Today I will start a daily Bible Reading plan presented by The Bible Gateway. As I read I'll post comments associated with the Scriptures read that day. I hope you'll follow along with me so that we can have a discussion and hopefully learn from each other. The plan is titled, Beginning. It starts at the very beginning of the Bible and reads straight through to the end. Click on the Title above to begin your Daily Bible Reading Plan. We are starting in Nahum chapters 1-3. I chose the New International Version, but you can choose a version that you are more familiar with.
