Word Wednesday .::28

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Habakkuk 3:17-19 ESV

17 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,

18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.

19
God, the Lord, is my strength;
he makes my feet like the deer's;
he makes me tread on my high places.

As Habakkuk is aware of the Lord's impending wrath, he holds fast to the promise of God's faithfulness. I love this passage. There's actually an old book called Hinds' Feet on High Places that I read several years ago, which is great and inspired by this passage. We're actually dealing with this topic of crisis this Sunday, and I think it's very relevant for this time in life. There's a lot of Christians that are worried about America and the economy. It's ok to be discerning and efficient, and make sure that we're taking care of ourselves, but we have to remember that if God will feed the birds, then He will most definitely take care of us, so we must rejoice in the Lord.

What's your Word?
