Details:  Coping  with the Tough Times: Habakkuk 1:12-17 (Part 2)
We are not the first not the last to experience catastrophic events. The Bible records for us, some of those events and how God's people responded to them. ( Romans 15:4 )
The more we are familiar with the Bible and governed by its teachings, the better equipped we will be to overcome the difficult times. ( 2 Timothy 3:16 ) The key is knowing and doing the Word of God - Jn. 13:17;Jam. 1:22; Joshua 1:8.
From our text we have learned: Think before you act and now we learn Dwell on God's absolute Truth. As long as our focus is on the eternal Word of God, we shall be triumphant. It's normal to be confused with what we and the world is going through, but we do not despair. We stick wth who/what we know and not go to the unknown. The devil will try to take you to the unknown so that he can shipwreck your faith, but our faith is grounded in God and His Word. God and His Truth is unchanging, eternal, reliable. If you want to fail and be disappointed, lean on yourself and others, but if you want to succeed and be victorious, lean totally and completely on the Lord and His Word. When all around us is unstable, we lean on the Rock. We know that He alone is dependable, at all times. He will never fail us,period. His love, power, wisdom will never let us down. He is all-powerful and all-loving,(Psalm 62:11-12). He can solve any problem,He can heal any sickness, He can defeat any foe. He is our God! " If God be for us, who then can be against us?" Romans 8:31
Dwell on who and what God is, dwell on what He has done for you and your family and your problems and difficulties will grow smaller. The God who has delivered you from so many problems in the past, has not changed and will help you defeat them, now.
