Habakkuk 3:17 and Slightly Opened Tree Buds, Eastern Nebraska.
“Though the fig tree does not bud and no fruit is on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though the sheep are cut off from the fold and no cattle are in the stalls, yet I will exult in the LORD; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation!” Habakkuk 3:17
Praising God Even When the Fig Tree Does Not Bud
In the first part of the book of Habakkuk the prophet questioned God. He wanted to know what God was doing and why. God then promised Habakkuk that He would act justly upon the wicked and the righteous. The Lord then reminded Habakkuk of the great works He did in the past.
The prophet responded to God with a hymn of praise. Verse 3:17 is part of that hymn.
