A little nugget to think on today…
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hind’s feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.
We should be so satisfied and spiritually filled, with just the presence of God, that any blessings He bestows are the cherries on top. Our faith, and relationship with God cannot be dependent on how blessed we are, but solely dependent on whether we have humbled ourselves enough so that we can allow God to fulfil our spiritual desires, and grace us with His presence.
So no matter if our ventures fail, if our health gives way, if our loved ones go, and our finances plummet; our praises to Him should never cease. Easier said than done, I know, but try, every day, to be satisfied with His presence alone.
