If you have ever experienced doubt because your prayers seem to go unanswered, then you can probably relate to a prophet named Habakkuk. Habakkuk prophesied during an era when he saw evil raging both near and far. Nineveh was being destroyed and Babylon was rapidly rising as the world’s next superpower. An eyewitness to violence and injustice all around him, Habakkuk cried out to God.

Habakkuk never stopped believing in the Lord—He was just having a hard time making sense of God’s approach to ruling the earth and her people. Habakkuk wondered why God didn’t intervene to save His people from suffering so much wrongdoing and harm. The prophet was astonished that the Lord seemed to be sitting by as really bad people were doing really bad things to others.

So Habakkuk did what so many of us are doing today in our world that in many ways mirrors these events occurring thousands of years ago. Habakkuk cried out to God for answers. Join us this week at Sedona United Methodist Church as Rev. Fred Mast begins a sermon series entitled, “God—Why Don’t You Do Something!”.
