Habakkuk knew that God was going to discipline the people of Judah for their sins and he also knew it was not going to be a good experience. The people turned from God and they were about to reap what they sowed. Habakkuk did not ask for the discipline to be removed but instead he asked for mercy and help from the Lord. He interceded for the people. He knew that they had to reap what they sowed but he prayed for God to have mercy. What a great man of God! What love that he had in his heart for the sinful people of that time!
Just as Habakkuk knew that God was going to discipline His people in that day, as Christians living in America in today’s world, we must know and realize that God will do the same in this age also. America will reap what she has sown. America as a whole cannot condone abortions or homosexuality as a life style and expect God to turn His head. America has turned her back on the One that made her a truly great nation and a leader of the free world. We have removed God from our schools, our court rooms, and from every part of our society. We have homosexuals behind some of the pulpits in our churches, we have homosexuals being married in our churches, and also joining our churches as members. Sin is not being preached anymore.
Do not think that nothing is going to happen or judgment from God will not come because it will. All through the Bible judgment came to countries that rebelled against God. America is no different.
