1) HABAKKUK'S COMPLAINTS (1:1-2:20)
2) HABAKKUK'S PRAYER (3:1-19)
When Habakkuk was troubled, he brought his concerns directly to Go. After receiving God's answer, he responded with a prayer of faith. Habakkuk's example is one that should encourage us as we struggle to move from doubt to faith. We don't have to be afraid to ask questions of God. The problem is not with God and his ways but with our limited understanding of him.
