Hanging with Habakkuk

Do you ever have a challenge hearing from God on issues for which you are really concerned?  Habakkuk did.  I do.  Look at Habakkuk 2:1.  When Habakkuk was concerned about what he had heard that God was going to do to Israel he stationed himself on a guard post.  Based on phrase, “…to see what He will speak to me…” I take that to mean that Habakkuk was engaging in a long prayer watch.
What do we do when we are struggling with something God is doing?  Thoughts at DTTB.
This notion of really struggling with God in prayer shows up more than once in the Scripture.  Jacob, Jeremiah, Jesus in the Garden, and His parable, Luke 11:5 – 8.  Paul’s exhortation to pray without ceasing in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

When there is a challenge, when we need to hear from God, there is nothing like spending extended time on our knees before Him waiting.  I am not really good at that, to my own detriment.
