Perplexed while praising. Wondering while worshiping. Bewildered while bowing.
Ever been there? Not quite doubting God and not really concerned that He’s lost control, but definitely and completely bemused at why God is not stepping in to stop evil and injustice; why isn’t He acting to restore what is right and good?
If you’ve been there, then Habakkuk is the prophet for you. In this short book, we follow an ongoing conversation between a faithful, praying prophet and the God who seems to be ignoring rampant violence, injustice, wrongdoing, and conflict, or worse, using the violence of pagan enemies to punish the people of God for their sins.
Does God really know what He’s doing? Yes, yes, He does. He knows exactly what He’s doing. By the end of the book, Habakkuk has come to recognize that no matter what is happening in the world, we can rejoice and find strength in our Sovereign Lord.
To find out how Habakkuk went from “How long, oh Lord” to “I will be joyful in God my Savior,” join us starting June 3 for a four-week online study in Habakkuk.
