Habakkuk: a prophet for historical perplexities

The Bible always presents us with perplexities.

Consider Psalm 73. A good person is perplexed at what he sees happening in his life and in the lives of others. Nevertheless, he holds his course. He finds something to hold onto.

Well, Habakkuk is a short prophetic book which talks about bad stuff happening. In it Habbakuk tells us that when troubles occur, we shouldn't compare our goodness with the goodness of those who are oppressing us. Have faith. Remember that God is the only sinless one. Trust God and live by faith. God uses even the evil person ...and even those who think they are good arn't as innocent as all that. Check it out.
