Habakkuk is an Old Testament book, found within the minor prophets, that speaks right into our current cultural climate. As the prophet wrestles with injustice, suffering, and economic recession his cry is one of ‘How long O Lord’ (Hab. 1:2). Yet it’s also a book full of hope, that encourages weary believers today, that in God, the ‘righteous shall live by his faith’ (Hab. 2:4). It’s a book that teaches us to be real with our questions and our anxieties, and yet at the same time, helps us to wrestle through our doubts. It’s a call to pursue God in prayer, to get to a place where even if God takes everything away, we are able to pray with Habakkuk, “Yet, I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation’. (Hab. 3:18).
