Remember God’s Greatness. Rejoice in God’s Goodness. Rely on God’s Grace
“Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.” - Habakkuk 3:17-19
If you’re saved, if you know the Lord, it doesn’t matter if gasoline goes to three dollars a gallon or if Wall Street hits bottom. If you know the Lord Jesus Christ, it doesn’t matter if they take away your fine house. The Bible says: “You can rejoice in the Lord your God!” Remember God’s greatness. Rejoice in God’s goodness. And rely on God’s grace.
Habakkuk has come to the conclusion of his conversation with the Lord, expressing his frustration and dismay at the way things were going in his beloved land. Truly, It was God’s land, for He had called the Hebrews to Himself centuries ago.
Here is his conclusion: “I will joy in the God of my salvation. God the Lord is my strength.” Here’s where we must arrive: “The Lord is my strength. He will make my feet like hinds’ feet. He will make me to walk upon my high places.”
Habakkuk began by asking, “Why? Why, Lord, why?” God never did answer why. He just said, “I’m going reveal Who: Me. I am your strength. I am your strength! I will make you like a sure-footed gazelle, and you can live on your high places.”
When Habakkuk wrote his book, he said, “It’s for an appointed time.” I believe it was for today. Then he said, “Tell the minister of music not to stop singing.” Don’t let an election steal your song! Keep on singing! Keep on praising! Keep on believing! Keep on loving! Our God reigns!“And the just will live by his faith.
