Habakkuk 3:17-19 is my favorite scripture selection in the whole Bible.

“Though the fig tree may not blossom and no grapes grow on the vine,
Though the olive crops fail and the fields produce no food,
Though there are no sheep in the pens and the cattle stalls are empty,
I will rejoice in the Lord for He is my Savior. The Lord is my strength.
He makes my feet like the feet of the deer and carries me over the mountain.”

Regardless of what mountain of trouble life places before us, and we all will be faced with those mountains, the Lord will give us the strength to climb over the mountain. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows (James 1:17)”. God never strikes us with any form of trouble, and he does not have to test our faith because He is all knowing. We are going to experience all types of problems, strife and turmoil in our lives just because we reside in these earthly bodies here on this planet Earth. It will not be until we join the Lord in His Holy Kingdom that we will be free from the trials of life we now face. What God will do is give us the strength to handle anything life throws on us. He will give us the feet of deer and carry us over the mountain! Praise the Lord!!!!!

Because I love this scripture so, one of the Sunday School classes I taught had it embroidered on a wall hanging for me one Christmas. It hangs in my living room where I read it every day to remind myself that life can’t hand me anything that day that God won’t give me the strength to handle.

God Bless,
