We all are disappointed at some point or another. Philip Yancey wrote a book titled Disappointed with God. The Old Testament prophet Habakkuk dares to ask what many have wondered silently, “God, why are you doing this?” You would not be alone if you have asked that question this year. God was planning to use the unrighteous Chaldeans to judge his unrighteous people. But the Chaldeans, a.k.a. Babylonians, were not good people. So. What was God’s answer? God offers Habakkuk something better than an answer to his question. He gives him reasons to rejoice even in a difficult time.
