Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Habakkuk sees the worthlessness of what most people live to achieve and work to own. He says right before our verse, "Has not the Lord Almighty determined that the people's labor is only fuel for the fire, that the nations exhaust themselves for nothing" (Habakkuk 2:13). But God promises us — his children — that our lives can matter more than fruitless labor and perishable acquisitions. We can live for him and to experience him and his glory. God will one day make his presence fully known to those who love him (1 John 3:1-3). What a glorious day when this promise is fully realized! Let's make every effort and commit ourselves to making our glorious God known to every nation, tribe, language, and people (Revelation 7:9-12) so they can share in this flood of grace God has promised his children!

My Prayer...

Almighty God, please lead me to someone who needs to know your salvation. Please bless your servants worldwide as they share your message with others. Please give them success and hasten the day this glorious promise is fully realized. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
