As Christians we can all trust God when things are relatively good in our lives. However, if we keep living, we will probably have to deal with some bad or certainly very difficult situations. It’s in the bad situations where you find out what your faith is made of; it’s in those bad situations where you find out whether or not you really trust God. Well in (Hab. 3:17-18) the prophet Habakkuk found himself in a bad situation. Hence, he declared by faith that “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut-off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will trust in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.” Thus, Habakkuk knew things were about to get bad, so he made a declaration of faith before God and Satan that no matter how bad it gets, “I will trust God.” As Christians we too must learn this lesson of faith, that regardless of the circumstances, regardless of what we suffer or lose-“we will rejoice in the God of our salvation.” Saints of God, we live in a world that’s rapidly changing, and it’s not getting any better; however, the one thing we can take from this prophet is whether you are on the mountain top or in the valley you will eventually have to draw a line in the sand and declare who you will trust, because situations and circumstances will demand that you make a decision.
God Bless You
