Prayer Focus: Kenya, Kiribati

Bible Reading: Nahum 1-3

Scripture

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 vents his wrath against his enemies. 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. (Nahum 1:2-3)

Observation

There is no one like our God. He is not only the Creator of emotions, He also embodies them. He is filled with jealousy, wrath, and power, yet He is is slow to anger, the Author of love, and the epitome of faithfulness.

Application

Get on God’s good side! Seriously. You don’t want to experience His wrath.

Prayer

LORD, I love You. I always want to be on Your good side, not only to avoid Your punishment but also to experience the abundant life that comes from righteous living and intimacy with You. Thank You for being slow to anger. You are so patient with me. Your grace is truly amazing. Your mercies never cease. I am so unworthy, yet so grateful for You and Your unconditional love. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
