1:1-4 Habakkuk had been praying and not seeing or hearing God.
1:5 "Look at the Nations and watch and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told."
2:3 "For the revolution awaits an appointed time, it speaks of the end, and will not prove false, though it linger, wait for it, it will certainly come and will not delay."
Habakkuk didn't understand what he was seeing around him. It didn't make sense to him. The fighting going on was extremely confusing. So he cried out to God. Pleading with him to change things. God responded with the fact he was going to do something amazing and even if I did tell you, you wouldn't believe me. Habakkuk had to have enough faith in God to wait for the coming revolution. Regardless of the outcome.
In our lives we may not understand what is going on around us. It may look confusing, crazy and not make sense to us. But we have to remind ourselves that God has a plan for each of us. And just maybe, even if he did clue us in on the plan, we wouldn't believe it. We have to remind ourselves that we are going to have to wait for him to reveal his plan. He never said this life was going to be easy. He did say he would always walk with us and never ever leave us!!! Now that is something to be thankful for.
