Taking Care of Business!
|READ – “Was it in anger, LORD, that You struck the rivers and parted the sea? Were You displeased with them? No, You were sending Your chariots of salvation!” Habakkuk 3:8 NLT|
EXAMINE – Habakkuk witnessed the arrival of the LORD from His heavenly home to earth. Immediately, the earth responded in shaking and the nations all trembled and even the mountains fell flat before Him (Habakkuk 3:6). The LORD made a way even through parting the water so that His chariots of salvation (Habakkuk 3:8) and arrows of victory (Habakkuk 3:9) could have an unhindered pathway. All of nature including the sun and moon stood still as the LORD worked and brought victory (Habakkuk 3:10-11).
APPLY – Taking Care of Business! We can trust God to take care of business when it comes to us, His children. Nothing can stand in His way. No one can stand up to His power. His will for our lives is a guarantee. Are you facing a battle in your life? Whatever the sickness, the storm, or the struggle may be, you are not alone. The LORD will come to your rescue. Today, pay close attention to nature and as you feel the cool wind or see the clouds or even drive across bridges of water, know that even nature “lifts their hands in submission” to our all-powerful God! You can trust God to take care of business!
PRAY – Father God, my soul needs resting, my mind needs refreshing and my joy needs restoring. So, today, I simply lift my hands in submission to Your will. Please perfect that which concerns me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
