"Waiting on God"
As Habakkuk continues his dialogue with the Lord, there seems to be more questions. In chapter 2 God reveals a profound truth that seemed to be missed by many people. God gave simple solutions to hard problems, while at the same time posing tough questions to the insightful mind.
God’s ways are perfect to Him, and because we do not look on the same plane of time and existence we do not always know where He is going with what we are experiencing. Sometimes it comes down to accepting that God knows what He is doing and we must release our will and trust His.
