Habakkuk

By Scott Brown, 2017/08/03

In this book, the prophet Habakkuk sees the advancing of evil and darkness and cries out to God for understanding. It is often difficult for Christians to reconcile tragic events or the rise of evil with the sovereign, perfect plan of God. We hear about or experience the dominating power of the wicked and wonder if God is looking, working to defeat the wicked, or if He is even there at all. Accordingly, we often struggle to reconcile God’s omnipotence and His sovereignty with our experiences. While we know God is good and sovereign, that He hates the works of darkness, and that He is omnipotent, we often wonder why He does not spring to action. Habakkuk teaches us that we can “rejoice in the Lord,” for He will deal with the wicked in His own way in His own time.
