Discussion for Habakkuk 3

    As children of God we have to be resolute. We cannot be moved or shaken by anything. We must be able to say like Habakkuh, I will trust the Lord if I lose my job, my car, my house, my husband and children, my savings, my 401k and so forth. Yet we will continue to trust the Lord and rejoice in him for he will come through for us, he will save us.

    Verses 17 and 18: Even though we may have no food and our livelihood may be affected, if we put our full trust and confidence in Jehovah God, he will supply everything we need and be our salvation.

    Let it be known that the horns coming out of the hands can also mean a glowing, some translations say moses had "horns" when he came down with the commandments but in KJV he came down having a glow upon him and not horns.

    V. 1 - shigionoth - from Erdman's Bible dict.: a prayer of lament, sadness.

    In verse 4 where he revealed himself through light and through horns let me see that he will appear in any form so that we may articulate that however he appears that everything has to and will bow

    What we cannot see God doing for us is more than what He reveals to us. My father is working always Jesus said. God is doing everything new and when He is done we shall marvel being it in our lives or in the church or in the world; He will do it very well. We believe Him for His word. And we rejoice greatly in the Lord our God. He is our strength and our salvation.
