Old Testament Habakkuk

Yet I Rejoice- Habakkuk 3:1-19 We come now to the last week in Habakkuk. It never ceases to amaze me when studying the scriptures, how rich and precious each book, verse, and even word is. The word truly is living and active (Heb 4:12). Habakkuk lived over 2,600 years ago, but his lament is still applicable to the people of God today.
