Asking the hard questions

Have you ever been in a situation where you were desperate for answers but too scared to ask God?

Habakkuk was a man who sought answers, and therefore he wasn’t scared to ask God, “Why?” or “How?” or even, “When?”

He asked these questions at a time when his heart was breaking for the dying world around him, and so he boldly took his complaints to God.

Habakkuk shows us that we too, can bring all of our complaints to God and that we need to understand that we don’t have to be afraid to ask God questions.

Habakkuk was written to show that God is in control of the world, despite us thinking that evil might be triumphing.

Reading this book made me realise that the issue may not lie with God and his ways, but within our limitations of understanding who He is.

When we receive that revelation, I believe our hope and faith in God then goes beyond our circumstances, and instead, we live by trusting Him because we know who He is.

No matter what we are battling, or what circumstances we are currently facing, we need to ask God those hard questions we have.

And most importantly, we need to remember that God is walking with us every step of the way because He will never leave us and His faithfulness and love endures forever.

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
