There are times in life where we have more questions than answers. Habakkuk was a unique prophet in that he asked questions of God. Most prophets were filled with messages, but Habakkuk was different.
"Habakkuk asked God why evil people prosper while the righteous suffer. He boldly and confidently took his complaints directly to God. God's answer: they don't, not in the long run. We cannot see all that God is doing, and we cannot see all that God will do. But we can be assured that He is God and will do what is right. Knowing this can give us confidence and hope in a confusing world." (Commentary)
What I love the most about this book in the Bible named Habakkuk, is that it begins with the prophet Habakkuk’s complaints, but Habakkuk concludes this book with a prayer of triumph! With God’s reassurance to him that one day the wrong will be judged and the righteous will prevail, he rejoiced with great confidence in His God! Habakkuk trusted in God to give him strength during his waiting period! In spite of all the troubles he saw, and there were many, he concluded by saying, "Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet, and He will make me walk on the high hills."
“God will strengthen those who trust in Him. He will give those who live by faith the same confidence that a surefooted deer has in climbing mountains. God will give His followers surefooted confidence through difficult times. They will run like deer across rough and dangerous terrain. At the proper time, God will bring about his justice and completely rid the world of evil. In the meantime, God’s people need to live in the strength of His Spirit. Like a victorious army, the righteous with God's strength will be able to tread on the heights." (Commentary)
Do you have questions that only God can answer? Be reassured that God cares, He hears and He is aware of what is going on in your life. Take your cares to God and let Him reassure you that at the proper time, God will settle the scores and He will make the wrongs - right.
