Habakkuk 3: 17,18

"Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vine, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though their 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." NIV

"Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield not meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and then shall be no herd in the stalls: yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation." KJV

Few will disagree that we are living in perilous and difficult times. Many are without jobs, life savings have been lost, and the future of the economy looks gloomy. Because we trust in the Lord, that He will keep His promises to us, we rejoice and praise Him, no matter how desolate and destitute we become here. We know what awaits us on the day He returns.

Heavenly Father, we are so willing but our flesh is weak. We tend to crumble and become fearful and distrusting when things go badly for us here on earth. Help us to always have our minds fixed on Your faithfulness and promises. Then instead of becoming overwhelmed by what is happening around us, we will rejoice and be glad because we know we will be with You for eternity. In Jesus' name, Amen.
