Leap For Joy

Hab. 3:17-19Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vine; 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. If you read this account in Habakkuk it looks much like what we see taking place in our world today. It appeared that all hell was breaking out around God's people and the prophet Habakkuk was questioning God. Often, we have questions. How can things get any worse, not only on the world scene, but perhaps in our personal lives? In the midst of it all, God reveals Himself to the prophet as the All Powerful, Mighty God, Who is able to turn any situation around. Habakkuk went from an overwhelmed state, to one of victory and joy. So much joy that he didn't just smile, he twirled, danced and leaped before the Lord. He went from the valley of despair, to the high places in God. Maybe it's time to do a little leaping yourself!
