"I will stand on my guard post and station myself on the rampart, and I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me, and how I may reply when I am reproved."
Habakkuk means "embracer." I believe he loved and embraced God with all his heart. Yet, he was a man full of questions, because evil men were being used to discipline the people of God, and it seemed evil was prevalent and going unpunished.
Haven’t we all been there? We are often perplexed by God’s ways in difficult times. May we all do as this verse reveals Habakkuk did. After pouring out His heart to God with his questions, (not to other people) he prepared himself for God to answer. He knew He would, and because of the last part of the verse, he knew whatever the reply was God would be right!
If you are perplexed and doubting the love and faithfulness of God, go to God and tell Him. Expect an answer; He will answer you. Seek Him with all your heart, and He will let Himself be found. (Jeremiah 29:13)
In His love.
A birthday gift made by my daughter, Sarah Beth, which found a home underneath the wreath on my chimney. How I love proclaiming from my home:
JOY TO THE WORLD! THE LORD HAS COME!
LET EARTH RECEIVE HER KING!
"LET EVERY HEART PREPARE HIM ROOM!"
