Daily Fountain 2017 - The Just

Tuesday February 7

Bible Reading:     Habakkuk 2: 1 - 20

Topic:         The Just

Central to our text is Habakkuk's declaration, "the just shall live by faith."

The New Testament affirms this fact in Rom. 1: 17, Gal. 3: 1 and Heb. 10: 38.

"The Just" means a person who has removed himself from being part of the sin of oppression, bribery, lawlessness, perversion of justice, idolatry and other vices that have become the Society's way of living and doing business.

He stands upon his watch like Habakkuk in righteousness, holding onto prayer, waiting patiently for the fulfillment of God's promise through a vision (God's Word) of a better tomorrow, and living according to God's Word.

The faith of the just shall sustain him during captivity and difficult times.

Those who do not have such faith will lose their patience in waiting for God's vision and promises to be fulfilled.

Are you just?
Do you still have faith?
Now that our Nation's economy is experiencing "captivity" and difficult moments, I hope you have not been drawn to being unjust; that you have not reneged on your faith and hope of a fre and fair society and that you are nit surrendering to other religions.

Don't be of them that draw back unto perdition but be of them that believe to the saving of the soul (Heb. 10: 39)

Father in Heave, I bow my head before you and plead that you give me the faith even that of the mustard seed that I may continually and continuously be just in exercising it, Amen

Memory verse:   Habakkuk 2: 3
"For the vision is for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie; though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come, it will not tarry."
