Armies in Ambush


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 pen

and no cattle in the stalls,
,
yet I will rejoice in the L
ord,

I will be joyful in God my Savior.

The Sovereign Lord is my strength;

he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,

he enables me to tread on the heights.

~Haakkuk 3:17-19 NIV


Charles Spurgeon the great English pastor of the 1800s 

writes: God has armies in ambush which will reveal 

themselves in the hour of need. The forces which are on the

 side of the good and the true far outweigh the powers of evil.

 therefore, let us keep our spirits up and walk with the gait of

 men who possess a cheering secret, which has lifted them

above all fear. We are on the winning side. The battle may be

 sharp, but we know how it will end. Faith, having God with

her, is in a clear majority. They that be with us are more than

 they be with them.
