2013-05-13 - What Would Habakkuk Say?
"Look at the nations and watch and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told." (Habakkuk 1:5 KJV)
God, when will You help me? I keep asking, but You don't come to my aid. How can You ignore me? I know You can hear my voice. How can You keep this happening, Lord?
Finally God answered me. I'm to keep an eye out, because I will not believe what God's going to do, unless I see it. There are things in the future, beyond my scope, that I would have to wait to see and be amazed at.
God foretold me, a mere man and prophet, that the Earth would be filled with the glory of the Lord. I too can stake my claim on the amazing and undeniable words of the Lord. God says He is about to do something I won't believe, unless I see it with my own eyes. I wonder what it could be? I know it will be something wonderful. I will continue to praise God, for that is where I find my joy, not in the midst of difficult and overwhelming situations, but in God. Now He has given me hope and strength to continue. His words steady me.
Lord, There are visions and hopes You put in me that haven't come to pass, and I admit I get discouraged. Show me how to make the waiting period bearable, and not let doubt over take my faith. Let me be the real me. Please reveal things about myself that I have not believed in a long time. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
What do you need God's help in?
