“Though the fig tree should not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines,
The produce of the olive fail
And the fields yield not food,
The flock be cut off from the fold
And there be not herd in the stalls,
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
God, the Lord, is my strength;
He makes my feet like the deer’s;
He makes me tread on my high places”. (Habakkuk 3:17-19)
“This God – his way is perfect,
The word of the Lord proves true;
He is a shield for all who take refuge in him”.
For who is God, but the Lord?
And who is a rock, except our God? –
The God who equipped me with strength
and made my way blameless.
He made my feet like the feet of a deer
And set me secure on the heights”. (Psalm 18:31-33)
In the time of our deepest darkness, our trust in the Lord, produces great joy
and strength filled confidence; without fear.
