Justice in the Face of Oppression and Suffering

I enjoyed some sweet time in the Biblical prophetic book of Nahum this week at the Simeon Trust Workshop. One of the themes of that book is the justice of God.

On Sunday night I will lead us in a brief study of that justice as it relates to our suffering.

What is a Christian supposed to feel and think when they are victimized? Is there anywhere to go? What do we do with all the troubles of life from our past that still haunt us? I think this prophet gives us direction and it may surprise you.

The Bible has an answer to atrocities like the raid by those Boko Haram militants that resulted in the kidnapping of 200 girls. We don't need to be afraid of those answers.
