11 Then they sweep past like the wind and go on—
guilty people, whose own strength is their god.” (Habakkuk 1:11 NIV)
Having strength is a good thing. Being a tall confident man my life, in many ways, has been marked by strength. However, many times I sought strength as my solution. I won’t say it was my god, but it has ever been a marker of my life.
When we become too wrapped up in things that we wield; strength, power, wealth, influence….we run the risk of trusting in something that can be fleeting. We make it our god.
All things of this world fail, these things especially. Who and what do we turn to when the world goes dark?
