The Prayer Of Habakkuk
"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 go on the heights."
Habakkuk 3: 17-19
We must praise and worship God not only in times of plenty and abundance of blessings but even in times of extreme sorrows and trials. We must trust God that the momentary troubles we are encountering will easily vanish as soon as the lesson to be learned from it is absorbed. God never delights in causing unnecessary pains and misfortunes to His faithful children, but He sometimes test the sincerity and faithfulness of all His chosen ones. To those who will overcome all the temptations and trials that come in their way, a righteous crown of glory awaits them. So we praise and worship God even in the midst of the most burdensome trial. We will always see that glorious light at the end of the tunnel.
Open Our Eyes Lord
