Habakkuk 2 – FAITH TRUSTING
(#2 in a series on the Book of Habakkuk)
In chapter 1 of Habakkuk, the prophet has his faith severely tested.
He gave his complaint to God concerning the sin of his people. Vss. 1-4
He received the consolation that they would be judged by the Chaldeans (Babylonians) Vss. 5-11.
He shows confusion wondering how God could use people more unrighteous than the Jews as tools of judgment. Vss. 12-21
He shows confidence, waiting for God to give Him an answer. 2:2
In this chapter we find Habakkuk trusting God for an answer. And Habakkuk is not disappointed.
