Habakkuk is one of the shortest books in the Bible, with only three chapters, you may have never heard of it before now. That is why I am giving you a verse from it, to hopefully inspire you to read the rest of the book and to remind you that God loves you very much and because of that will never leave you, even when you are angry at God for putting Sin in the world.
Though the fig-tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the sheepfold and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my saviour.
In these two verses, Habakkuk (whose prayer this is) says that even though his he is angry with the Lord for allowing all his crops to die and all his cattle to run away, resulting in him having no money, he will still be joyful and praise the Lord. Continue reading God will always love you

All all scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
– 2 Timothy 3:16
When it says ‘All scripture is God-breathed’, it actually means ‘All Scripture is breathed into by God’. This means that God breathed (told) the people, who wrote sections of the Bible what to write. We don’t know if that was through a vision, an angel or another person. That is why even though the Bible is all Gods word, each book is written differently (people today, phrase sentences differently).
The second most important fact to take from this Bible verse, is that scripture is useful. The Bible deserves more respect in today’s society. As you go away today, think about how useful the Bible is, it’s not just a book, it’s so much more. Share the good news with your friends, relatives and family. And secondly, remember that even though God didn’t physically write the Bible, God told the men and women what to write. Ponder over those thoughts this week.
We would love it if you shared in the comments section below your favorite verse from the Bible and maybe it will be featured in a post on Bible Verse Tuesday. Please like this post if you have enjoyed it and are looking forward to the third post in the series coming next Tuesday.
Cast all of you worries on him, because he cares for you.
– 1 Peter 5:7
In this verse, Peter is encouraging Christians he is writing to, to lean on God for help in solving life’s difficulties and overcoming their problems and struggles. In short, he is reminding them that God does care for them and as a result of this, if have any worries (problems, challenges), they can cast them upon him (he will take care, deal with them).
Today, as you go away and work in our busy world, just think about this verse and what it means. Keep it in your mind all day today and for the rest of the week, that you can tell God about all of your worries and why you are stressed and he will take in with his loving arms, all be he cares for you.
