Yet will I rejoice
Habakuk 3:17 -19 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 Saviour.
The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to tread on the heights.
That was a scripture that became very real to us during the time when we were fighting for our business.
When we lost everything we paraphrased this scripture to something like this.
Though we lost the business and the Salary is no more, and there are no cars in the garage, The bank account is empty; yet will we rejoice in the Lord. We will put our trust in the Lord and He will enable us to go on.
Sometimes the worst outcome can become the best thing that ever happened to you. When we lost the business as devastating as it was, we had already made a decision in our hearts that if the worst were to happen, we would still rejoice in the Lord and put our total trust in God. And as we look back over our lives now, we can see clearly that God had it all worked out.
So dear friends if you are going through some tough circumstances be like Habakuk, make a decision to say, "Yet will I rejoice in the Lord".
