Where God's Word Speaks

“IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS." (1 THESSALONIANS 5:18).


Today's Step in the Word

There is no getting away from the fact that God was from the beginning and is from everlasting to everlasting. God is the Word, the Word is God and there is no separating of the two. When we read the Holy Scriptures we come in close and personal contact with God. We know who He is and what He desires of us. So read God’s Word today.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away" (Matthew 24:35). "Thy Words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart . . ."(Jeremiah 15:16)

BIBLE ALERT - This feature takes a look at a Book of the Bible and highlights its spiritual application, meaning and other related facts.

This week’s alert features The Book of Habakkuk

The prophet Habakkuk is burdened and cries to God for the rampant iniquity and violence prevailing in Judah and which seems to go unrestrained and unpunished. God indicates that He will use the bitter and hasty nation of the Chaldeans to punish Judah for their sin (1:6). Habakkuk is surprised that God will use that terrible and dreadful nation who was worse than Judah to punish them and questions God on this (1:12-17). God reminds Him that He is God and is aware and in control of all that is going on and will use the Chaldeans for His purpose and that they also will be punished for their own sins. God gives him a vision for an appointed time when God’s justice will take effect on all who deserve it. He has Habakkuk write this vision and tells him that though it seems to be delayed he is to wait for it, for it will surely come and the just shall live by his (God’s) faith (2:3, 4).

“Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines . . . Yet will I rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation” (Habakkuk 3:17- 19).

Habakkuk prays and begs God to do His work in His appointed time. He is reassured that God is not dormant and is in control of all that will happen even to the salvation of God’s people. He acknowledges that God is in His holy temple let all the earth keep silence before Him (2:20). Habakkuk rejoices in God despite the bleak picture of the land. He acknowledges God as his strength and his salvation and concludes the Book with beautiful verses of thanksgiving and great faith (3:17-19).
