Habakkuk
Context & Summary
"Living by faith is a bewildering venture. We rarely know what's coming next, and not many things turn out the way we anticipate. It is natural to assume that since I am God's chosen and beloved, I will get favorable treatment from the God who favors me so extravagantly. It is not unreasonable to expect that from the time that I become His follower, I will be exempt from dead ends, muddy detours, and cruel treatment from the travelers I meet daily who are walking the other direction. That God-followers don't get preferential treatment in life always comes as a surprise. But it's also a surprise to find that there are a few men and women
within
the Bible who show up alongside us at such moments."

Genesis 12:1-3
"Why do you make me see iniquity, and why do you idly look at wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise. So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround
the

righteous
; so justice goes forth perverted."
Habakkuk 1:3-4 ESV
"...they sweep by like the wind and go on,
guilty men
, whose own might is their god!"
