Do you ever have days when circumstances look so contrary to the truths that God has been showing you? The last couple of days have been like that for me. The following verses have been an encouragement to me in this place.
Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Saviour. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.
