Habakkuk's Statement of Faith

Habakkuk makes a wonderful statement of faith in his short book in the Bible, a statement each of us should recite. #Bible #Biblestudy #BibleLoveNotes

Habakkuk was an Old Testament prophet who was a bit of a complainer (Habakkuk 1). But we should be careful not to judge him. He was a faithful prophet of God during a difficult time in Israel’s history. 

In fact, he is a good example for us. He looked at circumstances and felt like God’s justice was not prevailing. But in the end, he realized that circumstances do not determine the faithfulness of God.

We aren’t promised smooth sailing, great wealth, or popularity. We are promised something far better. We are promised the strength of God!

Habakkuk's three-chapter book ends with a triumphant statement of faith that we can also embrace:

“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! The Sovereign Lord is my strength!”  ~Habakkuk 3:17-19

I encourage you to recite this passage out loud, putting your present difficulties in the first sentence.
