Habbakkuk

Have you ever watched The National and wondered: What's up with the state of our world? Ever found yourself questioning God, perplexed and grieved by the injustice, hatred, immorality, and folly that has befallen our sick society? If so, then you should meet the Prophet Habakkuk!

"Habakkuk ministers during the "death throes" of the nation of Judah. Though repeatedly called to repentance, the nation stubbornly refuses to change her sinful ways. Habakkuk, knowing the hardheartedness of his countrymen, asks God how long this intolerable condition can continue. God replies that the Babylonians will be His chastening rod upon the nation - an announcement that sends the prophet to his knees. He aknowledges that the just in any generation shall live by faith (2:4) not by sight. Habakkuk concludes by praising God's wisdom even though he doesn't fully understand God's ways."
