Habakkuk was a man who saw a dying world that broke his heart. He sought answers and turned to God with his questions and complaints.
“How long, O Lord, must I call for help? But you do not listen! “Violence is everywhere!” I cry, “But you do not come to save. Must I forever see these evil deeds” Why must I watch all this misery? Wherever I look, I see destruction and violence. I am surrounded by people who love to argue and fight.” Habakkuk 1:2-3
And the Lord answered him!
“The Lord replied, “Look around at the nations; look and be amazed! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn't believe even if someone told you about it.” Habakkuk 1:5
“I have heard all about you, Lord. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by. And in your anger, remember your mercy.” Habakkuk 3:2
