“Patience and Peace Amid Perplexity”

Pastor Jonathan Hendrickson

1 The oracle that Habakkuk the prophet saw.

Habakkuk’s First Prayer

2 How long, Lord, must I call for help
and You do not listen
or cry out to You about violence
and You do not save?
3 Why do You force me to look at injustice?
Why do You tolerate wrongdoing?
Oppression and violence are right in front of me.
Strife is ongoing, and conflict escalates.
4 This is why the law is ineffective
and justice never emerges.
For the wicked restrict the righteous;
therefore, justice comes out perverted.


Habakkuk’s Confidence in God Expressed

16 I heard, and I trembled within;
my lips quivered at the sound.
Rottenness entered my bones;
I trembled where I stood.
Now I must quietly wait for the day of distress
to come against the people invading us.
17 Though the fig tree does not bud
and there is no fruit on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will triumph in Yahweh;
I will rejoice in the God of my salvation!
19 Yahweh my Lord is my strength;
He makes my feet like those of a deer
and enables me to walk on mountain heights!


Habakkuk 1:1-4; 3:16-19  HCSB

Intro: As we continue our “Echoes From Exile” sermon series, we find ourselves moving away from those minor prophets who were primarily concerned with Israel and the coming Assyrian invasion, and moving toward those minor prophets who were concerned with God’s imminent judgment on the southern kingdom of Judah.  The first of these prophets is Habakkuk. 

Habakkuk stands out against all of the other prophets we have studied so far, because not only is his subject matter Judah, but his style is one of lament or complaint.  The book of Habakkuk is comprised of a number of complaints from the prophet to God regarding the great amount of evil he is observing and the apparent lack of justice from God.  How can God be God if this much evil is allowed to go unchecked?

This is why Habakkuk is such a relevant book for our current circumstances.  How many, both inside and outside of the church, have observed the goings-on of 2020 and wondered like the prophet, “How long, O Lord?”  How long do we have to wait for you to provide a cure?  How long must we endure a world full of violence and oppression?  How long before you take your place on the throne and do away with corruption in our courtrooms and in our political processes?  If you are really there, why aren’t you doing something to stop all of this? 

And how many of us, have prayed prayers of intercession and felt like they only went ceiling-high?  We wait for God to answer, but it seems as though there was something that blocked our request from ever making it to His ear, either that or He is intentionally ignoring our entreaty.

If you have ever felt like this, or are feeling like this today, then allow me to share with you how Habakkuk shows us how to have patience and peace amid a world of perplexity.

Be Still

Verse 1

Lord help me now to face this battle

My strength has failed and my eyes can’t see

Through the waves of doubt that take me under

In the chaos I hear you speak



Be still and know that You are my God

Be still and know that You are enough

Though my heart is racing, still You’re in control

Be still and know that You are my God


Verse 2

You brought me rest in times of struggle

I lay my head down at Your feet

The storm in me that I can’t wrestle

Is calmed when I hear you speak


Bridge 1

You are faithful, and Your love endures forever

Yes, Your love endures forever

You are able, in You I’ll stand forever

Yes, in You I’ll stand forever
