This Morsel from God’s word tastes just right when I face difficult situations or hard tasks. It’s from Habakkuk in the Old Testament, who had been given a very difficult task. He writes, “The Lord is my strength. He makes me like a deer that does not stumble so I can walk on steep mountains.”

Paul says something similar in Philippians when he evaluates his ability to handle the hardships that God has allowed to come into his life. He explains how he can be happy when he has little or nothing. He explains how he is happy when God blesses him with much. Then he concludes, “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.”

Lord, be my strength today.
