Regardless of our situations and experiences with our earthly fathers, our Heavenly Father perfect and loving. But, like our earthly fathers, our Heavenly Father will discipline us. And in Habakkuk, we see the difference between discipline and wrath.
God answers Habakkuk's prayers for justice--but justice doesn't look like Habakkuk was anticipating. The Babylonians are being sent to take Israel into captivity.
The Babylonians are coming like sharks to feed and Judah is bleeding in the water.
Why do bad things happen? Why do evil men seem to win? Does God hear us? These are all questions we ask all of the time, that get answered in Habakkuk. But before we fully explore God's message to Habakkuk, we need to understand Who our God is, and the History leading up to the current circumstance in Habakkuk.
