The days were dark; evil was rife in society and the law of God was either neglected or ignored. God's people were suffering, and for the prophet Habakkuk the situation was not only intolerable, but it was about to get worse.
The prophecy of Habakkuk reveals to us, as does no other book in Scripture, an almighty God with absolute sovereignty, a God who requires that his people trust him absolutely even when things do not seem to be going to 'plan'. This is an emphasis that is much needed in the church today. The self-centredness that characterizes our society is almost overwhelming. We, like the people in Habakkuk's day, need a radical change in our thinking, acknowledging that it is God who is at the centre of reality, not we ourselves.
