If you think God has forgotten you, then you have forgotten who God is. – – Anonymous
When I’m in the valley, sometimes I simply need to remember. I return to whom I know God is. Habakkuk is a good teacher for us on this lesson, because it was not until the next generation that God kept his promise and punished the Babylonians. That can be a long time to wait, but the Lord was still faithful. Habakkuk gives us three little words that we can cling to when it appears that God has not delivered on what he promised. Mo matter what you might be going through. Never let go of these words.
Even if the world may seem upside down, but the Lord is still there.
Sometimes, even when we remember all that God has done for us, it doesn’t change our circumstances. Sometimes we just have to accept that it’s beyond our understanding right now and just keep going. Let us find our strength and hope in the Lord our God, and he will take us to new heights.
What do you do when you are in the valley? You remember what God has done. And you dare to believe that what he has done before, he will do it again. Trust God what he is going to do.
Allow that spark of hope to grow by trusting that God is right there beside you. As you grow to know God, he will reveal even more of his love, his faithfulness and his grace. Over time, you will realise, believe and embrace that even when life is difficult, God is still good.
I have heard all about you, Lord. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by. And in your anger, remember your mercy. Habakkuk 3:2
