Building One Another®

A Podcast About Encouragement

Remember the Yet


Building One Another  

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. I Thessalonians 5:11

Remember the Yet

Dear Friend,                              

With all of the uncertainty and anxiety of these days, it is easy to lose sight of our real source of a future and a hope.

The minor prophet Habakkuk offers a wonderful word for our present day:

Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, YET I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17-18

Yet combines the ideas of “at this time and nevertheless.” So, if at this time it’s raining while nevertheless the clouds are parting, we would say, “It’s raining, YET, the clouds are parting!

Yet is a wonderful word of hope! God is a “yet” God and we are a “yet” people.

When life is challenging, remember the yet! Yet offers the word of faith that affirms our Lord’s care even when life “at this time” seems uncertain

In the midst of the unknowns and anxieties in your life, trust yourself to the God who loves you.

Joy to you - Stan

Show Notes

  1. What are some situations in your life or in the lives of others which by themselves appear challenging, difficult, even hopeless?
  2. What would it mean to apply the idea of "yet" to each of those situations? How would you feel? In whom are you trusting for the yet?
  3. Our joy is that regardless of what is happening at any given moment, our God is the God of YET and we are a people of yet!
