I hope this letter finds you well, but if not, know that you are not alone. The prophet Habakkuk had similar struggles with pain, suffering, and injustice, and his words can bring comfort and encouragement to us today.
Habakkuk lived in a time when violence and injustice were rampant, and he cried out to God, “How long, O Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, ‘Violence!’ but you do not save?” (Habakkuk 1:2)
God’s response to Habakkuk was not what he expected, but it was a reminder of God’s sovereignty and justice. “For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay” (Habakkuk 2:3).
Like Habakkuk, we may not always understand why we are going through difficult times or why injustice seems to prevail. But we can trust that God is in control, and that He sees and cares about our pain and suffering. Romans 8:28 reminds us that “in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
I encourage you to bring your struggles to God in prayer and to seek His comfort and guidance. Know that you are not alone, and that God is with you every step of the way. I am praying for you, and I believe that God will bring healing, restoration, and justice in His perfect timing.
