The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him. Nahum 1:7
04/27/09 Yada-yada-yada. We’ve heard the phrase. We may have said the phrase. But it doesn’t mean “blah blah blah.” The Hebrew word “yada” actually means “to know.” What does that have to do with our verse? The New American Standard Bible says, “…He knows those who take refuge in Him.” He cares for us. He knows us. He ministers to us. Personally. Intimately. Lovingly. As only the King of the Universe can. As only a Loving Father can. As only One who knows and cares for my innermost being can. The Lord knows each of us so well that He is the only One capable of giving us the care that we truly need. All we need to do is trust in Him and put our hearts in His capable, nail-pierced hands.
