Praising God for the Evil Days

Dec 27, 2020    Grayson Gilbert
In the final chapter of the book of Habakkuk, the prophet has a face-to-face encounter with the living God that changes his entire perspective of the coming judgment through Babylon. Whereas before, the problem of evil left the prophet indignant toward God, he now sees God as He is: worthy of all praise. Yet this heart change does not simply produce recognition of the fact that God is worthy of praise. Habakkuk rejoices for the evil days ahead, namely, because He rejoices in the God of His salvation.
