Daily Devotion: The Prayer of Habakkuk
Key Verse: Verse 18 - “Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation."
Key Words: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord
When sin is prevalent, our focus should not be the sin, but God Who will ultimately put down the sin. We rejoice always in Him.
In the midst of great adversity, the God of all comfort will make sure that we will get the comfort we need. Even Habakkuk who lived in the midst of sin still rejoiced in the Lord.
On January 10, 2003, a young man named Terry Drier was in the water twenty hours after his boat had capsized. He gave a valiant effort at survival, although he later confessed he felt certain that he was going to die. After that long while, a helicopter located him, and sent word to a ship on its way to the Persian Gulf. The name of the ship was the USS Comforter. This vessel was on its way to do battle and paused to deliver one man. They went out of their way to save one man and there was a doctor on board who nursed him back to health.
Many people today are treading water, and they don’t know how much longer they can hang in there. People are tired and feel like all is lost. All we must do is look up and see that our Deliverer is hovering nearby. He knows exactly where deliverance can be found. The God of all comfort will make sure that the comfort we need comes our way.
What to do:
✞ In the midst of your adversity, God is near!!
