Though the fig tree does not blossom, nor fruit be on the vine. Though the labor of the olive fail and the fields yield no food. Though the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herds in the stall…Yet I will rejoice in the Lord I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, He will make my feet like deer’s feet and He will make me walk on my high hills. Habakuk 3:17-19
This is my 2010 Scripture and I thought it appropriate in the tumultuous times we are living. I have memorized the verse and I like to say it back to Father when I pray. It is my opinion that the Lord loves to hear us recite His words and I do it often. A few weeks ago I was doing this and as I got to the last sentence this is what came out of my mouth, Lord, You are my strength, You will make my feet like deer’s feet and You will make me walk on my high heels. At once I realized what I said and the Lord & I had a wonderful laugh!!!
But, you know, there is much truth in that! God enables us to do many things that we don’t think we can do. I have said many times to people, God won’t ask you to do anything that He won’t enable you to do. He is the Enabler and if He wants to help me walk on my high heels (which I don’t wear anymore!), He will.
The point is this…don’t have fear about the unknown or the days ahead. Our Father has our future in His hands and they are such capable hands. After all, He will even help us walk in those high heels!
Rejoicing in Hope!
