Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
Habakkuk was frustrated. “How long, O Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen?” (Hb 1:2).
The prophet gives voice to our disappointment with God’s silence. It’s hard to harmonize our heartache with our faith in a loving God who seems silent. How long, O Lord?
Habakkuk wisely decided, “I will wait to learn how God will answer [me]” (2:1). God answered: “It may seem like a long time, but be patient and wait for it, because it will surely come” (2:3).
Praying and patiently waiting brought Habakkuk to the conclusion that whatever happens, “I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength” (3:18–19).
It will do the same for you: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding” (Prv 3:5).
Take the leap: from fractured faith
to tenacious trust.
