Even though, God is still God.
You’re probably wondering, what does that mean? Well, it means that no matter what, God is still God on High, period.
Every now and then, I read newly familiar scriptures and see a new life philosophy that needs to be put in place. The most recent one is called the Even Though Philosophy.
Habakkuk 3:17-19 (NLT)
17 Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields,
and the cattle barns are empty,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength!
He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
able to tread upon the heights.
Basically, Habakkuk says, even though it may look bad and times may be hard, I’ve got God. God is still good, and for that reason alone, we should rejoice.
Even though I’m jobless, I’ve got God. Even though I’m still single, I’ve got God. Even though I’m down to my last, I’ve got God. Even though my health isn’t what I need it to be, I will rejoice, because I’ve got God.
Even though it may not look or seem like it, I’m good because I’ve got God, therefore, I’ve got all I need.
