Habakkuk served as a prophet to Judah from 612-589 BC, during the reign of Jehoiakim.
During that time Babylon was becoming the dominant world power. Habakkuk became troubled and he brought his concerns directly to God.
Habakkuk’s example is one that should encourage believers when they struggle to move from doubt to faith. Christians do not have to be afraid to ask questions of God. The problem is not with God’s ways, but with our limited understanding of him.
God is alive and in control of this world and its events. People cannot see all that God is doing, and we cannot see all that God will do. But we can be assured that he is God and will do what is right. Knowing this gives believers confidence and hope in a confusing world.
