Perseverance  |  June 25

Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls–
Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
The LORD God is my strength; he will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills….

Habakkuk 3:17-19


Father, few of us are without adequate food and we are blessed with many things that are not essential to sustain life. Yet, we worry about our needs, sometimes too much. Help us O’God to trust You for all things, large and small. Take anxiety about such matters far from us and replace it with the joy and confidence in Your presence and Your provisions.

What we need Father is a greater and greater dependence on You. Our enduring treasure is in heaven, not on earth. Help us use the assets that You give us in this life to better serve You, to run swiftly toward the goal and to walk with You on high hills, even when experiencing challenges in our day to day lives.

Thank you for Your constant presence, wisdom and sovereign control. We trust You Father! In Jesus Holy name, we pray, amen.
