Dear Bros in Christ,

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Brothers in Christ, this monthly devotional is sent and meant to be an encouragement to all and to build up and edify in the Lord Jesus Christ. Oikodome means "Builder". The Lord has put this on my heart to send out a monthly Iron Man Oikodome {oy-kod-om-ay'} to build up and encourage the men who love and follow Jesus Christ in their walk with Him. Hebrews 3:13 "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness." PRAYER REQUESTS: If you have any prayer requests please send them and I will send them out to the bros for prayer, if privacy is needed I will send in a discreet way.

IRON MAN OIKODOME BOX TOP 050 Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls--(Habakkuk 3:17NKJV). He Never Fails Bros you may be in a season where the efforts of your labor are not producing or yielding any fruit or results. Things are out of your control and you see nothing but lost opportunity, failures, more waiting and time consuming endeavors with little or no results and heartache in the things you had hoped would be very productive or maybe life sustaining for you and your family. You have put your heart and soul into the labor of your hands and stretched your giftedness in using your mind to create and produce and yet there is no harvest. How lifes disappointments can bring much heartache and especially when we feel we have poured ourselves into making a way or producing a way to provide for our families to no avail. And even in ministry maybe there are those areas of waiting and seeing no blossoms, no fruit and even though there be great labor that seems like failure with no results there is nothing seemingly gained or no yield to acknowledge. Maybe also there is a temporary separation from the flock, the fruit of fellowship, enjoying a time with the brethren, prayer, and studying Gods word together not by choice but it exists all the waiting and failures life has to offer seems to have mounted to heights that are now highly visible in every area of your life and you are consumed with dread night and day, you may be overcome, overwhelmed But look at the words Habakkuk paints of dismal failure of all creation and that sin and rebellion have brought on, are a stark reminder to all of us that life is not always pleasant and full of joy and happiness all the time we dont always succeed at everything in fact we fail a lot. Even though he is terrified by the coming invasion of Judah he will trust the Lord. He has confidence that Gods plans for now and as in times past as to how He will accomplish His perfect will gives Habakkuk trust in Gods wisdom and redemptive work. Habakkuk trusts in Gods salvation just as we should no matter where we are at right now in our lives, no matter how bad things are in our lives or how much waiting we have to do, no matter how much we lack or feel we need right now- look to the Lord as Habakkuk is saying and rejoice! Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation (Habakkuk 3:18 NKJV).He will show you great and mighty things when you trust Him and His planThe LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's [feet], And He will make me walk on my high hills (Habakkuk 3:19 NKJV). He never fails-EVER, have you ever seen a deer run- they run with confidence and endurance we only need to look to the Creator that gave them that ability to navigate extreme terrain at full speed with hardly a split second to survey it and react to it- they run, jump and land like they are on springs as soon as their feet hit the ground they spring right up in the air in one swift motion. God gave them those navigation skills and abilities just like He can and does give us the ability to navigate through lives challenges... We need to have confidence in the Lord as Habakkuk trusted Him in dire times; we need to trust Him and His plan today for our lives-amen! Agape,
