Injustice and wickedness abounds but the just must live by faith
Therefore the law is powerless [paralysed], And justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; Therefore perverse judgment proceeds. (Hab 1:4)
"Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. (Hab 2:4)
Habakkuk is impatient for God to deal with injustice and unrighteousness. We have seen more than 2000 years of the growth of such wickedness, and still the Lord waits. Laws have recently been changed to encourage evil in the sight of God, and Christians are severely punished for speaking of the Bible. However, Habakuk finds that God's timing will be perfect, and justice will be done; in His way and in His timing. In the mean time are you living by faith, in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ who died for your sins?
