INTRODUCTION. God’s ways and thoughts are as high above those of men as the heavens are higher than the earth (see Isaiah 55:9). In this week’s lesson, the prophet Habakkuk prophesied a dark future for his nation. God had revealed that Judah would be disciplined for its sin by the Chaldeans (or Babylonians). However, Habakkuk couldn’t understand how God could let the Jews sin and then be punished by the Chaldeans who were even more sinful than His people. The prophet had to learn to put his personal trust in God for salvation and leave all other matters in His hands. In this lesson, we will see how Habakkuk responded to God’s plan to chastise His people.
