Praying with Habakkuk

20 Jun

Last night in the men’s Bible study at IBA, the speaker spoke about trusting in God, from the book of Habakkuk.  We can trust him because of who He is.  He is a holy God, who keeps his promises and who is worthy to be feared.

When things look bad or we don’t understand what’s going on, let’s pray with Habakkuk.

Though the fig tree should not blossom,

nor 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 no 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 my feet like the deer’s;

he makes me tread on my high places.

Habakkuk 3:17-19 (ESV)
