17 Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields,
and the cattle barns are empty,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength!
He makes me as surefooted as a deer,e]">[e]
able to tread upon the heights.
(For the choir director: This prayer is to be accompanied by stringed instruments.)
I love this song from Habakkuk and the performance notes at the end :) When the world trembles at economic turmoil, we can rejoice in the Lord...our strength. We can stand strong in the face of tough times because we have a bigger, eternal picture than the world does. Our help comes from the Lord...BE JOYFUL TODAY!
