Habakkuk's Petition

"And I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me"
Habakkuk 2:1

In the previous chapter of Habakkuk, the prophet had poured out to God his complaints of the Chaldean's violence and wickedness against God's people. After Habakkuk had said all he had to say, he stayed alert and waited for God's reply. We don't know how long Habakkuk had to wait, but we see in the next verse that God did answer him. The Lord always answers his servants when they humble themselves and seek His help. Not always in the way they would expect, but He does answer nevertheless. We can learn much from Habakkuk about petitioning God. Pray - Watch - Wait.
