Today we read the short book of Nahum which was written as an announcement of judgement on the Assyrians who conquered Judah. The prophesy of Nahum is focused on Nineveh which was the capital of the Assyrian Empire. The book of Nahum is meant to bring comfort to Judah who was the subject of the Assyrian domination. The main message in this book is that God’s timing is perfect. It is hard to be patient for God to relieve us of stress or hurt, but sometimes He is simply preparing us for His blessings that are yet to come. Patience is tough, but God’s blessings are always worth the wait.
