Day Thirty-one – הַיּוֹם אֶחָד וּשְׁלֹשִׁים לָעֹמֶר
Though the fig tree should not blossom and there be no fruit on the vines, though the yield of the olive should fail and the fields produce no food, though the flock should be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls, yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17–18
“Bank balance $0.00”
God knows what we need before we ask. Yeshua used birds and grass to remind His disciples that God is aware of the needs of His creation. He advised them to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and these things would be added. It isn’t easy to trust in hard times. Genuine trust holds onto God and is anchored in Him. God is an anchor for our souls our trust in Him keeps the anchor point secure.
• How do you weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice? You command us to live this way. How do you demonstrate this to me?
• How can our knowledge of God in history reinforce us in our current anxieties? Find someone to talk to about this subject. Find strength in relationships anchored together to the Lord.
• Read together with a group Psalm 54 or search online for someone singing it. Discuss the historic situation that David lived in when he wrote the words of this song.
