17 Even if the fig tree does not blossom
and there are no grapes on the vines,
If the olive trees fail to give fruit
and the fields produce no food,
If the flocks die far from the fold
and there are no cattle in the stalls;
18 Then I will still rejoice in the Eternal!
I will rejoice in the God who saves me!
19 The Eternal Lord is my strength!
He has made my feet like the feet of a deer;
He allows me to walk on high places.
Habakkuk 3:17-19 The Voice (VOICE)
Things are not going well in this passage and we get the feeling that life is pretty miserable at this time for Israel. Can I just say I get it, Habakkuk you have my hearty Amen brother!
Personally, I have had a very challenging winter this year and this verse from Habakkuk, spoke to me about being afflicted. Even though I am suffering, the Eternal Lord is my strength! Regardless of what it looks like around me in the chaos, He alone allows me to walk in high places, so I will rejoice in El Roi the God who sees me (Genesis 16:13.)
“He sees all things; nothing escapes His mighty gaze. Through Him you can see beyond your circumstances. He wants you to see the bigger picture of your life!”(Mary Grace Birdkhead, Teacups Full of Treasures, 2006)
Come join us this Spring, as we awaken out of the gray slumber of winter and rejoice in the God who see us. Come see beyond your current circumstances and learn about living a creative life! It will be so sweet!
