Habakkuk Devotional Series

This prophecy of Habakkuk tells of a struggle and triumph of faith which took place in the soul of the prophet himself. “It begins with a sob, and ends with a song; and it is in the process from the one to the other that the little book discloses the heart of its meaning to us.” —Dr. Harold L. White

Picture1Chapter 1: Habakkuk’s Conflict

How long, O LORD, will I call for help, and You will not hear?
I cry out to You, “Violence!” yet You do not save.
—Habakkuk 1:2

Have you ever questioned how God seems to be working—or not working—in your life? We might be struggling with financial problems, wondering how much longer we can keep a roof over our heads. Perhaps we’ve been praying for such a long time for a specific need, and still don’t have the answer. Maybe we’re living a life filled with…

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.

  1. Anna, what a great, relevant message for us today. Too often I carp, as Habbakuk did, about the alarming state of our society, but we know God sees it too and will act in His time for His purposes.

    When I read what you said about them worshipping their nets and drags, my mind raced to the way we think today. No, we don’t worship our nets, but do we rely on our investments, the stock market, our education, our jobs, etc. to give us a sense of security instead of God?

    Can’t wait to read more of this series.

  2. God will always be on time.
    These days I wonder how much longer He will delay His coming. I think it must be very close.

  3. I have been asking “how long, O LORD?” for a long time. Like you, I believe his return is very close.
