Usher In The 2020
Hi Everyone, as we close out 2019 and usher in 2020, let's end and start on the same high note....REJOICE!!! My absolute favorite passage on this theme is Habakkuk 3:17-19. The prophet presents what we could call a litany of woes, all the chips are down! This farmer has no prospects for a livelihood, "no blossoms on the fig tree, no fruit on the vines, the olive crop fails, no produce in the fields, no sheep in the pen, and no cattle in the stalls." vs 17, Wow! In fi wi Jamiekan Langwidge...."Nutten nah gwaan" or "Nothing is going on". But in the next verse, regardless of his situation he raises an anthem of pure, undiluted 'Yet Praise'. Verse 18: "yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Saviour." He can make this bold declaration, he has full confidence because "the LORD is my strength; He makes my feet like the the feet of the deer, He enables me to go on the heights." vs. 19. Going up to the high places, no matter what, going where only the swift deer with strong hinds feet can trod! Up the mountain, over the crags and rocks, rugged terrain but unstoppable! Let us commit to this attitude of 'yet praise' as we enter 2020 and watch God move while the devil gets defeated, again and again, A we seh REJOICE!!! I wish for you a joyful 2020, if you are interested in following my blog send me your email address and look out for my book in April 2020, 'Miracle of Love and Grace'. To God Be The Glory! He has done great things!!!
