Weekly Recap #39 - (Part 5) Habakkuk

Do y'all have trouble pronouncing "Habakkuk"?  
I know that I do!!!

Here are a few facts about him.....

~~~His name means "embraced by God"
~~~He was poet and a prophet
~~~Habakkuk felt close enough to God to question His actions - just like we would a dear friend.
Isn't that how each of us should be?!?!?

Chapter 1 - He questioned God for sending the Babylonians to capture His Chosen People.

Chapter 2 - Described what the future was for Babylon because of all their evil against Israel.
Chapter 3 - Habakkuk's prayer, praising God's power to save.

Habakkuk 3:18
.....yet I will rejoice in the Lord! 
I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!!!

AMEN...and AMEN!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
