Habakkuk

1:2-4 How long, O Lord, must I call for help?
But you do not listen!
“Violence is everywhere!” I cry,
but you do not come to save.
Must I forever see these evil deeds?
Why must I watch all this misery?
Wherever I look,
I see destruction and violence.
I am surrounded by people
who love to argue and fight.
The law has become paralyzed,
and there is no justice in the courts.
The wicked far outnumber the righteous,
so that justice has become perverted.

We cry out for You, Lord, in this unpredictable time. So many cry for answers in an evil world. They have been crying out to You for thousands of years. The answers are not the ones that we look for. The answer might be that the world is filled with evil and the only rescue is turning to You in our time of distress. In times of trouble, many will cry out. God is not callused to our pain, to our hurt, to our troubles. He is a compassionate God who will comfort when you cry to Him. He is a loving Savior that rescues us from the darkness and brings evil into the light. He is a concerned Father that beckons us to return.

3:2 I have heard all about you, Lord.
I am filled with awe by your amazing works.
In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by.
And in your anger, remember your mercy.

Today i pray that many will cry out to the One who loves, the One who saves, the One who rescues. Today i pray for comfort, peace, faith, answers.
