Habakkuk 1:1; When God seems silent and unfair

Habakkuk was a prophet to Judah prior to the Babylonian captivity. In this vision of coming judgement that God showed him, he foresees the destruction of Jerusalem and the fall of Judah and the nation’s deportation to Babylon. In the face of this judgement which comes at the hands of a nation more wicked than the rebellious people of Judah, Habakkuk asks 2 questions of the Lord. The first is “why do You not hear my cry, Lord?” The second is “why are You not acting fairly, Lord?”. These questions are timeless and asked by many of faith when in tough circumstances. What Habukkuk learns and how he grows in light of God’s response to these 2 questions is the beautiful insight this book shows. Join us in the study…
