“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Habakkuk 3:17-19

TODAY’S WORD…

Even though the fig trees have no fruit

and no grapes grow on the vines,

even though the olive crop fails

and the fields produce no grain,

even though the sheep all die

and the cattle stalls are empty,

I will still be joyful and glad,

because the Lord God is my saviour.

 

The Sovereign Lord gives me strength.

He makes me sure-footed as a deer

and keeps me safe on the mountains.

– Habakkuk 3:17-19

 

REFLECTION…

There are times in our lives when everything seems to be going wrong. There are times in our lives where nothing appears to be working out according to our plans. There are times in our lives which bring us close to despair.

Those are the times when true faith and trust in God will shine through – more than ever. Those are the times when a heart, though burdened, remains full of hope and full of love for the Lord. Those are the times when a believer will shout out, “I will still be joyful and glad, because the Lord God is my saviour. The Sovereign Lord gives me strength. He makes me sure-footed…and keeps me safe…”

 

PRAYER…

My Lord and my God, Your will be done.

My loving Saviour, in good times and in bad, I will rejoice in You!
