Living By Faith When You Just Don't Understand Habakkuk 1:12-2:4 Summary: Here is a really hard question: We know God is always good and holy. So why does he allow or use evil in the world? That is the hard question the prophet Habakkuk asks when he realizes God's people will be attacked and carried away by a nation that seem much more sinful than Israel. Habakkukís second complaint: His confidence in God His willingness to wait Godís second answer: His timing is perfect His call to faith Verse: Romans 1:17b ...As it is written, ďThe righteous shall live by faith.Ē Discussion questions: 1.

Do you ever struggle when you see unbelievers prosper while you or other Christians suffer? Why? What hope does this passage offer? 3. Where is the good news of the Gospel for us in this passage? How did Jesus' death defeat our greater enemy once and for all? What would it look like to now live in the gap until Jesus comes back?
