Habakkuk

The prophet Habakkuk was despondent about what God’s people had become because of their refusal to hear the warning of God and choosing to continue in their evil ways.  Habakkuk called out to God on behalf of the people.  God responded by sending a fierce, foreign force that invaded the land.  Habakkuk wrestled with God about this solution, and in the end he chose to rejoice in God even “though the fig tree does not bud and there is no fruit on the vines.”  This message sheds light on God’s interaction with His people and informs us of our own hearts and those of His people around us.
