Habakkuk 1:3 ” Why do You make me look at injustice? Why do You tolerate wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds.”

Habakkuk was a prophet during the time that Babylon was invading and crushing all other nations. His Book is a dialogue between God and him where Habakkuk asks God why the tyrant, Babylon, is allowed to flourish…causing deliberate and brutal infringement upon others. Habakkuk’s questions for the Lord are both piercing and compassionate…”How can the wicked prosper at the expense of the righteous? How can You just sit there and act indifferently while Your people suffer? How can You even tolerate watching all this wrong doing?” Fast forward to today and we could be asking God the very same questions. That’s because around us everywhere seems to be misery, violence, and oppression and we may think like Habakkuk that God doesn’t care…but He does! For God is completely wise and sovereign…seeing all and hearing all…and at the appointed time He will act on behalf of His people.
