Blessed Assurance

Habakkuk teaches us to be assured in your decision to follow Christ (who leads to Father). He was reassured because of what he has heard (2:14; 3:1-2)- of God’s fame and deeds and that someday the entire earth will be filled with God’s glory, and what he now sees (3:3-19) – God’s splendor, strength, salvation, and security. He is the King of Glory!

We need to trust in God in our time of fear and time of famine just like this Minor Prophet. 

I heard and my heart pounded, my lips quivered at the sound; decay crept into my bones, and my legs trembled. Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity to come on the nation invading us. Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls,  yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
    I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. - Habakkuk 3:16-19 

Give God the glory he deserves and remember the Lord always fulfills His promises! Amen?
