But still …
This is a short word to inspire you to have ‘but still’ or a ‘yet’ in your life.
(The Jordan river was the largest watercourse in Palestine. It was a psychological barrier for the people as it was a huge risk in crossing it. It spoke of a transitional move from one experience to another).
Gideon refused to be discouraged by the people of Succoth and Penuel who refused to give him and his army food.
Instead he stayed focused.
Crossing the Jordan, exhausted, in fear, maybe sickness, disturbed by many questions perhaps.
But it does not matter how you are when you cross, what matters is this: are you still in pursuit?
Are you still becoming all that you can become?
BUT STILL …
Though the fig tree does not bud, but still I will rejoice in the Lord. Habakkuk 3:17
