Does God "allow" bad things to enter into life, or does He "cause" them? What brings you more comfort? A passive God who seemingly arbitrarily allows tragedy according to His whim, or an active God who is loving, all powerful, and unfolding a plan according to His wisdom? We may scoff at the idea of God being in perfect control (and choice) concerning tragedy, but is there a better option?

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.
