PRAYER: Please pray for the weekend. Pray that as folks head out to church, they would be ministered to and drawn closer to Jesus.
DEVOTION: “Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!” – Habakkuk 3:17-18
For those of you who know my music, you know this is the verse that the song “Even If Not” is based on.
I still love the sentiment of this set of verses. All is falling down around Habakkuk, yet, he continues to worship. He continues to praise and make known the fact that God continues to be His source of salvation.
Really incredible sentiment. I encourage you today. It can be hard. There may be pain, hurt, suffering and doubt.
Let God into it all. Let Him bring you rest. Let Him bring you peace. Let Him bring you hope.
