Habakkuk – Chapter 1: Habakkuk’s Complaint

Today we start a new book, Habakkuk.

“How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen?” – Habakkuk 1:2

God doesn’t exist, so forever. Or God does exist and he’s an asshole and you still have to wait forever.

“Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?” – Habakkuk 1:3

A good question that God never answers.

“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

This is God speaking and we’ve heard this before. God never delivers.

Lord, are you not from everlasting?” – Habakkuk 1:12

As a human made God, the Lord has lasted far longer than necessary.

“Why then do you tolerate the treacherous?” – Habakkuk 1:13

Another good question God never answers.

The chapter ends with Habakkuk awaiting an answer to his second complaint. Will God answer? We’ll find out in the next chapter.
