by faith

IMG_1610Habakkuk 1:12-2:20

Habakkuk’s second complaint is that the LORD is overlooking the evil of Babylon as he metes out judgment through them.  The answer is an oracle against Babylon which will be fulfilled in due time. Meanwhile, how does a righteous person live in a time when his own people are being judged for their sin?  God’s righteous person lives by faith — confidence in the LORD regardless of the circumstances.

LORD, make us examples of your kind of person – the righteous who live by faith.
