The Prophets
Is God really good if the world is so unjust?

This is a central question the prophet Habakkuk wrestles with. He calls out to God asking him to deal with human evil, but he is angry when God doesn’t deal with unjust nations in the way that Habakkuk thinks he should. God reminds the prophet that God will deal with evil in every generation. We can continue to trust his timing and plan as we remain faithful to him.

God Hears Our Lament

Unlike other prophetic books that offer warnings of judgment against corrupt nations, the book of Habakkuk is a compilation of the prophet's laments. Habakkuk questions God's goodness because he sees so much injustice, evil, and tragedy in the world. See how Habakkuk brings his concern, and even anger, before God in his desire to see Israel restored and human evil defeated.
