YET I WILL
Though the fig tree should not blossom
nor the fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be not herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
God, the Lord is my strength;
he makes by feet like the deer’s;
he makes me tread on my high places.
Sometimes, you just don’t see it.
The financial breakthrough you’ve been waiting for– the healing you’ve been praying for, the peace you’ve longed for.
Sometimes things appear hopeless.
I believe there is an important lesson to be learned from the prophet, Habakkuk in this scripture. He lived during a time of calamity. He spends a majority of his book asking, “where are you, LORD?” and “How long shall I cry for help and you will not hear?” (Habakkuk 1:2).
These are questions we all face at some point in the midst of trials and struggles in this life.
However, in the midst of his struggling, Habakkuk had incredible faith and strong trust. Even though he didn’t see breakthrough, and everything still looked like it was falling apart, Habakkuk declares with utmost confidence: “Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.”
What hopeless situation are you facing today? What seems impossible?
Rejoice in the Lord. Believe that what He says is true and that He will give you the strength to see this situation through.
Trust Him today.
