Every time we complain about life events, we essentially put God on trial. We question His choices, wisdom, love, and care for us, insisting through our complaints that we know better. And though God is gracious and patient with us, even giving us "permission" and "language" so to speak to bring our complaints to Him, we also ought to do so humbly with reverence, as Habakkuk seems to have. May we be people who want to be made and conformed into the image of God, rather than people who try to conform God into our image.

ABOUT THIS SERMON SERIES: Habakkuk was a prophet of Judah, and during his time, God's people were living treacherously, committing idolatry, and living out godless lives. Habakkuk complains to God, asking why God simply sits back and watches His own people live this way. And God reveals that He has a plan, but even if God were to reveal His plan, no one would believe it. In this book, we get a picture of God's perfect and sovereign rule over not just His people, but the whole world, and we find great comfort in a sovereign God as we await His Kingdom.
