I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what He will say to me,
and what I will answer concerning my complaint. Hab. 2:1
When I was in college, I took a special course taught by a professor who had been a psychologist for over 40 years. He regularly used the phrase, “This is the stuff of life” when he referred to what folks faced in their lives and how he journeyed with them through it. I think Habakkuk gives us an example of how to handle “the stuff of life.”
Here’s what I mean:
These are the lessons we can learn from an ancient prophet. Which one stands out to you? Which one is speaking to you?
Thankfully, God is so gracious and faithful to speak to His people then and now. What a privilege it is to have God’s Word.
Remember, Jesus is walking through the stuff of life with us!
