Through-the-Bible Thursday: Habakkuk (3.5 mins)

When our minds are confused and our hearts overwhelmed, the best thing to do is follow Habakkuk’s example: talk it over with the Lord. Habakkuk wasn’t sure what concerned him more—that God at first didn’t seem to be doing anything about the evil all around, or that He was going to do something, by using the Chaldean army as a threshing instrument to mow down the wicked and idolatrous house of Judah. But the key to the book is at 2:4, “the just shall live by faith,” with a three-fold New Testament affirmation and application (Rom 1:17; Gal 3:11; Heb 10:38). The prophet’s punchline? When all you have is God, God is enough!
