Habakkuk 1

Habakkuk's 1st complaint
"How long, O 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 wrong?

The Lord Answers
v. 5
Look at the nations and watch - and be utterly amazed.
For I am going to do something in your days
that you would not believe, even if you were told.

Habakkuk's 2nd complaint
O Lord, are you not from everlasting?
My God, my Holy One, we will not die.
O Lord, you have appointed them to execute judgment;
O Rock, you have ordained them to punish.
Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrong.
Why then do you tolerate the treacherous?
Why are you silent while the wicked swallow 
up those more righteous than themselves?"

Remember Habakkuk 
when life seems unbearable

Do we not get overwhelmed with the trials of life,
and wonder if God has forgottten us???

Don't ever forget GOD IS IN CONTROL!

God has a plan and will judge evildoers in HIS time,
be willing to accept God's answers in His time!
