Held Down

DAILY VERSE

God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.

Habakkuk 3:19

DEVOTION

If you’ve ever had to take your child in for vaccinations, you know the internal pain that causes, to see your child in pain. Sometimes you have to hold them down so they can get the injections. God does the same to us. As we wrestle through the hard times and trials placed before us, God holds us still because, in the end, these times bring about change and the good things He has in store.

Habakkuk’s name means: To wrestle and to embrace. Both at the same time.
