Today I am thankful for the following “life verses” that have been written in the front of my Bibles since 1976:
- Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
(Habakkuk 3:17–18, NASB95)
- If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.
(Daniel 3:17–18, NASB95)
- Though He slay me, I will hope in Him. Nevertheless I will argue my ways before Him.
(Job 13:15, NASB95)
NO MATTER WHAT, I WILL PRAISE THE LORD!
