Are you depending on the circumstances around you to trust in God? These verses remind us that God is in control in spite of what we can see around, what we are experiencing in our lives.
If there is suffering in this world we know that it is because of sin. Habakkuk learned that “the righteous in God’s sight live by faith”. (Hab 2:4) This verse has been repeated so many times in the new testament making us ponder, go deep into its meaning.
To live is to exist, to dwell, to stay for a long time. It’s like chewing your favourite candy hoping it will never end.
We need to trust in God’s providence regardless of circumstances. In spite of nothing we need to rejoice in the Lord for He is eternal. What we see around us is for a while. The strength the Lord gives is sure footed confidence like that of a deer.
God has blessed us with so much yet we we years for more. Let us trust in the One who provided for His people in the desert. The one who heard Jonah’s cry in the belly of the fish. The one who raised Lazarus from the Dead.
Thank God you are alive and will live for eternity in his presence one day because of his Son Lord Jesus Christ! Praise the Lord!
