Day by Day Through the Bible: Three Days in Nahum - Digital Download
Nahum is a sequel to the Book of Jonah. Jonah went to Nineveh declaring God’s impending judgment, but they repented and were spared, to Jonah’s dismay. However, repentance did not last very long. The Assyrian Empire was established by bloodshed, massacre, cruelty, torture, destruction, and plundering, like seldom seen in history. It ended the northern kingdom of Israel and captured the southern kingdom of Judah. But just because God uses ungodly people as an instrument of His judgment does not mean He excuses their conduct. Do not be confused with being used by God with being right before God. Nahum is one of the most colorful prophetic writings in the Old Testament with its graphic images and descriptions. This 11-page devotion takes you through the three chapters of Nahum in three days.
Comment: If you feel like you may be being used of God, but your heart is not right with Him, it is time to get square with the Lord. Confess your sins because He is faithful and just to forgive your sins and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Get your heart right with God today. Become a consistent Christian.
Prayer: Father, we thank You that You are a God of salvation, You are a God who keeps Your promise, and You are a God of deliverance. Thank You that You are a God who will by no means clear the guilty. You are good, You are a stronghold in the day of trouble, and You are the one who brings good news.
