Finished Habakkuk today. Headed to Zephania next. It’s the last of the three chapter books. Read one chapter each day and by Sunday you will have finished the entire book!
Habakkuk 3:3, “I see God moving…” (NLT)
This chapter is a song of praise to God from Habakkuk. Utter devastation is about to fall. God’s justice is about to be fulfilled, yet Habakkuk looks through the difficulty to see that God is moving. He’s working out his plan in us and through us. Habakkuk’s response? Habakkuk 3:18-19, “…yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights.”
I don’t know what you face today but there are two truths you need to understand.
- God is putting all the right people in all the right places to accomplish his will in your life, your family, your church and your world.
- God wants to do something in you and through you that can’t be explained because of you.
I see God moving.
Do you? Where is God at work in your life, your business, your family, your church, your community? Will you join him there? Will you get excited, get involved, and get moving with him? My dad always said you’ve got to lead, follow or get out of the way. Right now God is leading you somewhere. Will you follow or will he move you out of his way?
I see God moving. I’m going with him.
Thank you for your amazing work in my life and our world. There is so much injustice in our world today and God I know you intend to fix it. I trust that your timing is perfect and ask that you give me the patience to endure until you do. I see you moving in our world. I want to join you in that work. Put me exactly where you need me. Equip me to do exactly what you need done. Give me the strength, wisdom and courage to accomplish the purpose you set before me. You lead. I’ll follow. Do something in me and through me that can’t be explained because of me. Let the world look at me and glorify you.
I love you, in Jesus name –
