Dear Friend,

This past Sunday, we began a new series in the book of Habakkuk. 

Habakkuk is a prophet from the old testament. He had a dialogue with God about the injustices and the violence of people. 

He wondered why God seemed unfair and unjust in his dealings with the southern kingdom of Judah. His basic question was, “God, why won’t you do something?”

God responds by saying, “If I told you what I’m about to do you wouldn’t even believe it.”

What was God about to do? Well, I’m glad you asked. He was about to raise up the Babylonians (A nation that was way more wicked than Judah) to judge Israel. 

The thing that we are reminded of in this book is that when it doesn’t seem right or fair we can remember that God is at work no matter how we feel or what we think about the situation.

In Habakkuk 2:4, he reminds us that the just shall live by faith.  My prayer, is to do the same.

May God bless you!
