Habakkuk 1:5

Look among the nations and watch-Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you. Habakkuk 1:5

The Bible teaches that God causes nations and their leaders to rise and fall (Daniel 2:21; 4:32-35; 5:21). When Habakkuk complained that it didn’t seem right for God to use wicked Babylon to discipline Israel, the Lord assured the prophet that this did not mean evil would triumph. God was still in control and would one day bring about perfect justice (Habakkuk 2:13-14). We too can be sure that our times are in God’s hands. No matter what may happen in this world, God still rules!
