Today’s inspiration: “Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls— Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.” Habakkuk 3:17-18 NKJV. How do we response or react when prayers are not answered and things are not getting better? Is God is real or powerful? Am I praying correctly or are there any blockages to my breakthroughs? We all face such emotional struggles in the journey of faith.
The truth to the matter for prophet Habakkuk is not that he has no revelation or he doesn’t know about what is going to happen to the Nation. His joy wasn’t found in answers of his dire situations or plight, neither his hope was on what is to come. Habakkuk is a worship prophet, and he worships God in spirit and truth. His joy is only found in the Lord alone which the enemy couldn’t steal and no spiritual forces can kill or destroy Worship of God. Worship guards our soul from crisis and critical moments in life threatening moments. It gives us spiritual strength, peace, faith, hope, and love in Christ. Even at the Cross, Christ worshipped God with psalm 22:1. Worship can bring tremendous healing, peace, comfort and rest to our soul. It is the strongest weapon of warfare against all odds. Glory to God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, I worship you with all my heart, with all my soul and with all my strength. In you I put my trust and rest my soul on the rock of ages and the rock of my salvation. All Jericho walls shall fall in worship and all enemies shall rout in the praises of the Lord. The reason I live is to worship you, for you are my strength and portion. You make my feet like the deer’s and I shall walk on high hills, in Jesus Name, Amen.
