PRAYER 30: Fig trees may no longer bloom, or vineyards produce grapes; olive trees may be fruitless, and harvest time a failure; sheep pens may be empty, and cattle stalls vacant — but I will still celebrate because the LORD God saves me
The prophet Habakkuk had many questions about the injustice and wickedness in the world and God’s silent response to it. After a series of dialogues with God he is enlightened with profound answers. He now leaves everything to God and entrusts himself to the Almighty. He acknowledges that God is always in control no matter how bad things may seem. While others may feel betrayed and rejected the prophet rejoices.
This is indeed a prayer of deep understanding and exceeding faith. May the LORD grant you faith to say this prayer.
(Habakkuk 3:17-18 CEV – Habakkuk)
