Yet I will rejoice in the Lord , I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:18
Rejoicing is not a response to our situations it is a step of faith. Habakkuk was witnessing the complete destruction of his people. He could have been angry and filled with hatred. But instead of bitterness he chose to trust in something he knew he might not live to see – God’s restoration. He decided that if God had given him a mountain of difficulty God would also give him the strength to climb it.
Whatever mountain we are facing we can also choose to rejoice. By faith we can claim His promise of feet like a deer to walk on our highest mountain paths.
