Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.
Quite a lot, I bet.The prophet Habakkuk reminds us to trust in God, no matter what; to know that there is a divine plan, that things happen for a reason, that even when evil men triumph, it is for a season, and that ultimately justice will be delivered by God.
Habakkuk is no passive observer. He questions God. He seeks answers. He finds them in faithfulness.Our faith will always be challenged by circumstances, by the ways of the world, but we are called not just to loyalty to God, but to rejoice in His mercy, His grace, His plan, and His gift of our lives. We owe Him everything.
Sweet Freedom in Action
Be like Habakkuk and rejoice in the Lord. God will never abandon us; we should always be faithful to Him.
