Yet, I will Rejoice….

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, yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! – Habakkuk 3:17-18

Though I prayed for a baby and did not see the face of that baby this year — yet I will rejoice in the God of my salvation

For……The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights – Habakkuk 3:19
Since the Lord is our strength, we will be able to run again like a deer  We have hope – the positive expectation of our future. With the strength of God we can do it all over again. Our future is bright and secured.We will recover what was lost and that’s why we rejoice
The Lord with His inexhaustible strength will recharge us to run the race all over again. Aren’t you glad we don’t have to do it again with our strength because our strength fades but God’s doesn’t.
