Faith is…

Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,

and there are no grapes on the vines;

even though the olive crop fails,

and the fields lie empty and barren;

even though the flocks die in the fields,

and the cattle barns are empty,

yet I will rejoice in the Lord!

I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!

Habakkuk 3:17-18 (NLT)


Paraphrase for today: Even if things look bleak; even if I’ve lost my job and can’t pay the bills; even if someone I love is sick; even if I can’t see past today still I will praise God. My faith is not based on my circumstances but on who I know God is.
