A few words on belief from a great prophet:
“But the person in right standing before God
through loyal and steady believing
is fully alive, really alive.” (Hab 2:4)
“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 go on the heights.” (Hab 3:17-19)
In spite of circumstances, this man chose to believe!
