Habakkuk’s written work is not directed at the people. It is a complaint against God. It is an unusual insight into the heart and soul, the expectations and the anguish, of one of God’s prophets. Habakkuk's words ofttimes echo our own experiences. These words may allow us to step into a very difficult, sometimes poignantly painful, place in our own struggles and questions of faith. When violence and corruption abound and evil appears to rule, we may be tempted to wonder whether God really cares about us or is really in control of the world.
