The next cab off the rank is Habakkuk, in our Old Testament Minor Prophet series.
Not a lot is known about the prophet himself. Yet we do have a fair bit of information about his heart… he is deeply concerned as to why God allows a wicked nation to punish Israel. God assures the prophet that he cannot stand wickedness in any form and that both nations are under judgement. Habakkuk does not fully understand this answer, but in the end, he comes to a sense of trust in God's wisdom and justice.
It’s easy to appropriate this book for our own life and times. These are big questions, which lead to many more questions. But like Habakkuk found out, God is to be trusted and he is faithful. While we don’t see everything we know that God does – this is where faith comes in.
And that’s why we are called to walk by faith and not by sight.
