Please click the links below to Habakkuk 1:
Habakkuk prophesied to the kingdom of Judah between the time when the Babylonians defeated the Assyrians at Nineveh(612 B.C.) and the Babylonian invasions of Jerusalem (605-597 B.C.).
Chapter 1 to 2 record a dialogue between the prophet and God in which Habakkuk expresses some difficult questions about God's plans, and God responds with some revealing answers. Having seen so much wickedness and perverted worship practices in Judah, the prophet's first question was how God could allow his rebellious people to get away with so many spiritual offenses without being punished. God answered by revealing how he would soon use the Babylonians to punish the nation of Judah. But that immediately raised another question in Habakkuk's mind: How could God allow a nation even ore wicked and cruel than Judah to punish his people? God answered by assuring the prophet that a time of judgment would also come for the Babylonians.
Do you have similar questions about God's plan deep down in your heart that you do not understand and want to ask? If so, this book will surely help you to know how you should do to deal with those questions.
My Spiritual Journal
What I got from Jesus today is: O Lord, tell me why?
Many years ago when I did not have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus I asked many questions challenging God's plan. Why he did that to me? Why he did not do that to me? Why he allowed evil people to wander around? Why this and why that?
But after I had a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus, I do not need to have those questions. When Michelle had lukemia, I did not ask God why? I did not know whether Michelle would die or not. But I have a total trust in God that when He allowed that to happen He must have His own plan and what I could do is to trust Him totally. That is only a challenge out of many to prepare us to be a better disciple of Jesus. You must think that as a priest being ordained in 1988 I had a long time daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus. No! I had been a burn-out priest for quite a long time until I listened and obeyed to His command to start this Daily Devotion on fire since July 2009. Before that I thought the preparation of my sermon, Bible study and other studies should be enough and I just needed to have two to three days of daily devotion.
I do not know how many unanswered questions you have from God, but I am sure if you truly have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus you would have less and less questions but to receive the challenges from the Lord boldly and bravely.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be more closer to you each day that we do not need to challenge your plan. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
