WHAT THE PREVAILING PROBLEM/SITUATION FOR WRITING VERSE(S)

Old Testament Survey Series: The Minor Prophets Habakkuk’s Watch (Habakkuk 2:1)

Habakkuk has boldly challenged the plan of God to punish Judah by means of a Chaldean invasion. The prophet knew that God would respond to the challenge. The response, however, was quite different from what Habakkuk expected.

Habakkuk depicts himself standing “upon my watch” and “tower” to await a divine response to his complaint. This is a way of saying that he would be alert, like a city watchman, for any sign of response on God’s part. At reason’s end one must wait on revelation

All of God’s plans have a guaranteed promise, you just have to have patience to receive them.
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning
I’m the head and not the tail
I’m the lender and not the borrower
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
