In the past year, we have witnessed widespread civil unrest. Others have been victims of racial injustices and police brutality. Over 200,000 have had their lives taken from them by the coronavirus. Many have lost their jobs and their sources of income. Depression and anxiety affect most individuals. We all feel lonely and isolated.
Where is God?
It feels like God is gone.
While it only takes about 10 minutes to read each book, Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah just might be the least read books in the entire Old Testament. They’re books of compassion, hope, and comfort for those who long for justice, peace, and humility. We will see, through their messages, that God has not left us.
The phrase “God is slow to get angry” serves as both a promise to the oppressed, and a warning to oppressors. God desires a relationship with all people, but will not allow injustice to rule unchallenged.
