" Are You Willing To Question God?"
Habakkuk 1: 1-4; 2:1-4
In these two scriptures the prophet Habakkuk is having a conversation with God. The prophet is speaking with God because he is deeply troubled and concerned about what he sees happening in the world. The prophet sees injustice happening around him, and he sees the breakdown of moral and social order happening. And so he questions God, because of God is all powerful, if God is sovereign, if God is good and just, why hasn't God done anything o fix this situation?
