“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.”

Habakkuk 3:17-18 NIV

How in the world does one rejoice in the midst of such desolation? Habakkuk doesn’t pretend this is easy, but he does tell us it is a choice. The prophet turns a “what if” into an “even if” and determines his mind’s course independent of circumstance. By training his eyes, through practice, to remain on the Savior, on the goodness and sovereignty of God, he stays in an attitude of prayer and joy.

Where are your spiritual eyes focused?🚦
