What I Read Today;
Ephesians 5; Acts 3-4; Habakkuk 1-2; Ecclesiastes 10; Esther 2; Deuteronomy 21
Habakkuk doesn’t understand what is happening. The world seems to be spinning out of control. Israel is no more, and Judah seems intent on following her.
So Habakkuk does the only thing he can think to do. He drops to his knees and lays everything out before God. Then he does something that we’re not good at doing. He waits for an answer.
God’s answer is a simple one. Have faith in the promises of God and wait.
God simply says if I have made a promise, then I will keep it. It’s as simple as that. God will keep that promise, and the blessing will be greater than you could imagine.
Then comes the hard part. God says you have to wait on his timing. God’s timing is always perfect. It’s still precisely when it needs to be. His reasoning will make sense to you and me after it happens. God can see the bigger picture. He can see when his moving will have the most significant impact possible. But that means we have to trust him and we have to wait.
But God also promises that the wait will be worth it.
