Habakkuk 1:2-4 (NIV)
How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save? Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrongdoing? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted.
You don’t seem to CARE
You aren’t doing much when You COULD
What You are doing doesn’t seem FAIR
In a crisis of belief we are SHAKEN before we become STRONGER
Habakkuk 2:1 (NKJV)
I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint.
The problem isn’t that God isn’t SPEAKING; most of the time it’s that we aren’t LISTENING
Habakkuk 2:2-3 (NKJV)
Then the Lord replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.
WRITE it down
The enemy wants to STEAL the seeds that God is PLANTING
Habakkuk 3:1-2 (NIV)
Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.
When we struggle to see God, REMEMBER His faithfulness
Habakkuk 3:17-19 (NIV)
Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.
My worship, my joy, my satisfaction doesn’t depend on the EXTERNAL – it depends on my TRUST in God
