Our Study in Habakkuk explores how we are to respond in the midst of questions, doubts and disappointments. Remember God's will is not the road that we walk, but how we walk on the road before us. We can always choose how we will respond. Habakkuk had serious frustrations. There was much he did not understand about what God was doing. But his choice shows us how we can worship in the darkness.
