Habakkuk was seeing huge changes in his world – power was shifting, and the future was uncertain. Looking at this Old Testament book can provide a timely glimpse to aid to move from ‘fear frustration to faithful joy’. Habakkuk had huge questions he was asking God, but God wasn’t jumping at the opportunity to answer everything Habakkuk was wanting. He was learning what you and I reluctantly learn – to live by faith and discover God’s sovereign faithfulness.
This week – what do you chase after, how do you perceive your accomplishments or those obtained by others. Do you discover joy in God’s salvation, even when you feel stuck? Habakkuk 2:5-17
I am gleaning insights and ideas from ‘A Habakkuk Study, Not According to Plan’ by Marissa Henley.
