HABAKKUK CHAPTER : 3
It is good if we can move away from all the normal activities of daily life to welcome the gracious presence of the Lord , even until we can be aware of our own breathing and allow Him to open our eyes and heart .
Be still and know that I am God .
Our reading this morning was Habakkuk Ch : 3
Following his complaints we hear the Lord's reply to Habakkuk . It must have seemed very disappointing , a godless Babylonian army to demonstrate to his own people their need to repent . However , there seem many injustices in this life , and sorrow and pain in others that can sometimes be overlooked . Prayer and silence can indeed be the only response left . We can however trust only in Him and the lordship of Jesus Christ .
Habakkuk Ch 3 : 2
'Lord , I have heard of your fame ; I stand in awe of your deeds Lord . Repeat them in our day , in our time make them known ; in wrath remember mercy' .
