Read Nahum 1 today.

Nahum is not one of the most popular books of the Bible. It was written about 2500 years ago and was directed at the Assyrians, who were particularly brutal and cruel. They had already conquered the northern tribes of Israel (722 BC), and other nations and peoples lived in fear of them. Nahum’s prophecy was that the Assyrians power was temporary. They would not stand forever because they were not following the Lord.
God’s patience is sometimes frustrating for us. His patience is a trial for our patience. We desire that God would act in a way we want, at the moment we want. Yet that is not God’s way.
Is there something in your life today where progress seems to be moving too slowly? This may be the area of your life where you need to trust God more completely. May our prayers be not only that God would intercede to change in our situations, but also that God might change us.
Nahum 1:3 NIV
The Lord is slow to anger but great in power; the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet.
