The book of Habakkuk ends with one of the most beautiful descriptions of faith and faithfulness in the entire Bible. Habakkuk 3:17-19 says:

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 Savior.

The Sovereign Lord is my strength;

    he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,

    he enables me to tread on the heights.

In this episode, we explore this beautiful text in the context of all of ch. 3 (and all of Habakkuk) learning what it takes to trust God continuously ... even when His actions don't make sense to us.
