Habakkuk’s complaint is similar to what we’ve all been complaining about lately; “O LORD, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear? Or cry to you “Violence!” and you will not save? Why do you make me see iniquity, and why do you idly look at wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise. So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted.” Habakkuk 1:2-4
The Lord responds to his complaint, and it says, “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.” Habakkuk 1:5
The LORD is on his throne, he sees what’s going on, but we must wait patiently for him to act. He knows the pieces that need to fall into place so that his revenge is sweet and justice is served. I wouldn’t want to be standing near any of the satanic people when the earth opens up to swallow them!
Don’t worry about what may happen to them; keep yourself clean and unblemished by sin.
“For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3
I believe we may be living in the appointed time; I could be wrong, but what we are experiencing right now makes me feel like we are about to see this word come to pass. Watch and witness what the LORD is doing. Justice will be sweet!
