Habakkuk 3:17-19 (NLT)
17 Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; 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, 18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! 19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights. James 1:2-4 (NIV)
As I was led to this passage this morning, it made me think. If everything was stripped from me like Job, Would I still love the Lord? I believe I would. Would you? Here is the deal though, you may never know unless he takes you there, and if He does then praise Him.
That is where the next passage takes you. When you are stripped or you feel your world is crumbling where do you run? Do you run to the Lord? Do you run somewhere else? Porn, alcohol, food or whatever?
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
I don’t know where you are right now, but where ever you are it is right where He wants you. You have a choice. You can run to Him or ……………. Well it is your choice
It has been an incredible week. I have seen smiles come from brokenness.
This Michigan Quest is almost over, but the Quest for the Lord is not. Thank you Lord for letting me be a part of you Glory
Thank you Jesus when you made the way when you said “it Is DONE!”
