    This is the hall of faith.Every christian at a point in time goes through hard time or times the foundation of man is broken.Never the less there is no way to quit,or be embittered, or yield to self pity.God who make solid foundation and even call things that are not there as though as they were will sure prove Himself stronger than before.
  • Ora carlisle for verse 3
    this scripture says God, the God of our fathers, discovered himself from Teman, but my understanding is that no one knows where God comes from that this is a prayer from Habakkuk,God is the beginning and the ending, therefore, he didn 't say my beginning starts from Teman, am I wrong or correct.

    Jesus taught us to walk with FAITH and NOT by Sight. Jesus ways are higher than our ways and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Whatever trouble, tribulation we may encounter they are only temporary. God revealed himself that he is God who can make all things to be restore. We must believed on him and trust him only as nothing is impossible as he promised. He is loving God forever.
