The Challenge

The Challenge

Is questioning God wrong? Isn’t that a lack of faith? Who are we to call God into question? Habakkuk is a bold, impetuous prophet who does exactly that. This prophet challenges our concepts of faith and God rewards those audacious challenges with revelation that helps us in our quest for God, particularly in the face of hard times.
I am praying that Habakkuk’s message will resonate with us and will move us toward an open, honest relationship with God that will strengthen our relationship with him and stabilize our faith regardless of the circumstances.

Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told. For behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, who march through the breadth of the earth, to seize dwellings not their own. They are dreaded and fearsome; their justice and dignity go forth from themselves. Their horses are swifter than leopards, more fierce than the evening wolves; their horsemen press proudly on. Their horsemen come from afar; they fly like an eagle swift to devour. They all come for violence, all their faces forward. They gather captives like sand. At kings they scoff, and at rulers they laugh. They laugh at every fortress, for they pile up earth and take it. Then they sweep by like the wind and go on, guilty men, whose own might is their god!” (Habakkuk 1:5-11 ESV)
