As we find ourselves constantly confronted with challenges large and small, how do we rejoice? Habakkuk concludes this book with where our focus should be.
When uncertainty strikes us, we turn to all sorts of things looking for the power to rescue us. In God, we find the only one who truly can.
God’s control of history is precisely what we need to reflect on when we live in uncertain times.
The woes in Habakkuk 2 are strong, but the grace given to us by Jesus is stronger.
The familiar verse “the righteous will live by his faith” is quoted multiple times in the New Testament to remind us of God’s grace through faith. But, it’s point doesn’t stop there — it also assures us of God’s faithfulness in times of trouble.
Like Habakkuk, we often wonder why God leaves us waiting in the midst of things that just aren’t how they should be. Why does evil prosper? Why does God allow his people to suffer? How do we process these things?
We wonder why the wicked seem to prosper when God says He loves righteousness.
