Habakkuk is a book that can easily incite uncertainty and provoke thought. It is easy to challenge and hard to be challenged. As men and women of God, we must be willing to do both. I know that I can quickly challenge another, but when the tables are turned my natural stance is defensive. It becomes an act of service to God to accept the challenges that He has brought to you for the purpose of personal growth.
