There is on record a conversation between Daniel Webster & some of his illustrious compeers. Somebody raised the question as to the finest & most beautiful passage in the Bible.

One argued for the Creation story, another for the Sermon on the Mount, a third for the description of the redeemed in Revelation.

Webster slowly quoted the exquisite words: 

“Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls; yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.” (Hab 3:17-18)

“When you cannot rejoice in feelings, circumstances or conditions, rejoice in the Lord.” -  A.B. Simpson.

“The Lord gives His people perpetual joy when they walk in obedience to Him.” -  D.L. Moody.
