The Book of Habakkuk (Habakkuk 3:17-19)Phillip Stuckey, November 15, 2020
Part of the Overviews of The Minor Prophets series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
The book of Habakkuk begins with a cry of frustration to God in the face of evil, sin, and oppression (Hab. 1:2-4). As we consider the state of affairs in our country, we can probably relate. But the book ends with praise and hope (Hab. 3:18-19). How did Habakkuk move from frustration to faith?

Habakkuk 3:17–19 (Listen)
17 Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
19 GOD, the Lord, is my strength;
he makes my feet like the deer’s;
he makes me tread on my high places.
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments.
