TRUSTING GOD NO MATTER WHAT

August 21

In this book Habakuk has been perplexed by the seeming victories of God’s enemies and all the things they have done to God’s people. He complains to God in chapter one and begins to pray after hearing God’s answers. By the time he gets to the end of the book God has shown him that all of these things are to work out His purposes and that in the end the wicked will get what they deserve and God’s people will be vindicated and victorious.  Many times we are like Habakuk and look around at all that is going on and say why God, but remember what he found out and know that no matter how bad it looks and whatever we may lose in this life, God is still on the throne and will ultimately bring us victory and the sufferings of this world will be like Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 For our momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, 18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. Let us remember this and keep our outlook and attitude in the right place.

Habakuk 3:17-19 Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls- 18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. 19 The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills
