we recently finished the book of habakkuk at church. it is the first time that i've ever been taught on the book of habakkuk. i LOVE God's timing in it all. this past wednesday, this verse spoke volumes to my heart.
i have a CHOICE to REJOICE in the Lord. even when everything seems barren.
to TAKE JOY in God. even when everything feels empty.
the GOD of MY SALVATION. what a sweet promise of salvation.
my GOD, the LORD who is MY STRENGTH. God is my strength. nothing else.
what peace this gives. when we can rest on God's promises. that we can make a choice that will give us comfort and peace. we don't need to rest in ANYTHING BUT GOD.
and PRAISE GOD for that!
