Speaker: Lukus Counterman - It seems at last the struggles of Habakkuk have come to some resolution. God has revealed his plan for just judgement and told the prophet to watch and wait. In the end, injustice, evil, Pain in the pollution of society would be stopped by the Lord who is sovereignly into groundIn his holy temple (2:20). Habakkuk has no more questions, no further need to plead his cause, he has no case to make, or compliant to voice. He has learned to keep silent before the Lord whose glory will cover the earth (2:14). The prophet has been hushed, and turns to the Lord with a prayer of praise and worship. It is as though faith has truly triumphed in Habakkuk's perplexing situation. He has embraced the perspective of heaven and has submitted to the Lord's timing and means of intervention. All Habakkuk can do at this juncture is accept the just and merciful dealings of the Lord and cast himself upon God's care. May the Lord teach us to do the same in the midst of our trials and perplexities.
