Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.
A stronghold is a fortress or place where you can receive protection from enemy attack. God is a good God, and wants to become your fortress. Sometimes He will give directions which may not make any sense at the moment, but later you will find it was the best thing you could do.
Since you are trusting the Lord, expect Him to become your protection in a time of need.
