February 6th 2016 – God is Enough


“Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls- Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.” (Habakkuk 3:17-18)

After several complaints to God and three chapters later, the prophet Habakkuk comes to an amazing revelation. In his brokenness, he finally realized that God is enough. In His song of prayer to the Lord, he writes of what is to come for the land of Judah. No figs, no wine, no oil, no food, nothing was left all because of their sin. Yet, when faced with the reality of these things, he says something so profound…

“Yet I will rejoice in the Lord”

Imagine this, You’re going to barely be able to feed yourself and your family and in the midst of that fear you are filled with the joy of the Lord. This is not a fictional occurrence. This is God at work. His mercies are new every morning. Each breath we take is a blessing from God, but there’s more. In His great love, He sent His Son to die for our sins. We can now be forgiven not because we deserve it, but because God desires to show mercy and declare forgiveness. This is the God that Habakkuk clung to in those hard times. This is why he was able to say, “I will joy in the God of my salvation.”

“The mercies of God are evident all around us if we take the time to notice them.”


Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your great love for me. Help me to continue to look for Your mercies all around me. No matter my life circumstances, I know that You are good and can be trusted. Give me the strength to walk the path of faith You have laid before me. In Jesus’ name, Amen
