We often boast about the wonderful fact that if God is with us, who can be against us, however have we ever thought as to what will happen if God is against us? will we be able to defend? do we have a chance? is there still hope?
God being against anybody is probably the remotest possibility for anyone for the very nature of God is that, He is slow to anger and abounding in love.
Before God would ever go against us, we rebel against Him and His goodness and thus cause Him to anger.
Here God is against Nineveh and in His anger speaks thus to them...
"Draw your water for the siege!
Fortify your strongholds!
Go into the clay and tread the mortar!
Make strong the brick kiln!" Nahum 3 :14(NKJV)
God is asking them to prepare at their best to face His anger, however He knows the outcome...
"There the fire will devour you,
The sword will cut you off;
It will eat you up like a locust." Nahum 3 :15(NKJV)
We were created in the image of God to dwell in perfect peace only with God and thus any other circumstance in our life or our Godless state is the most pitiable.
Jesus said about Himself :-
"And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.” Matthew 21:44 (NKJV)
God is our Friend and the best that we can ever have, He is there to shield us, protect us and bless us.
Let us find our shelter in the Lord and let's not fall in the hands of the Lord for our destruction.
