#29 Shaken by God
Continuously updated, this collection of Martha‘s writings is for all in search of true intimacy with Christ.
Habakkuk 1:13 ESV
You who are of purer eyes than to see evil and cannot look at wrong, why do You idly look at traitors and remain silent when the wicked swallows up the man more righteous than he?
The wicked sent against the righteous to make them more righteous? The evil given predetermined power over God’s people, a cruelty sent for the express purpose…of suffering?
Habakkuk’s idea of justice was shaken. “How could You, who are innocent of wrong, use that same wrong for Your purposes?”
So the man interrogated His Feeble God for His inaction and began to accuse Him of being untrue to His own character.
And God loved the fight.
