"...not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith" - Philippians 3:9

A rhetorical question
“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior”
Why, when none of these things are happening for us, when nothing appears to be going our way, why would we seek joy in God our Savior, to rejoice in the Lord?
