About Sovereign Love Series

There are two things we need to know and believe about God: His eternal power and His divine nature. Is God truly who He says He is: Sovereign Love?

Devotional

Habakkuk 1:13 ESV
You who are of purer eyes than to see evil and cannot look at wrong, why do You idly look at traitors and remain silent when the wicked swallows up the man more righteous than he? 

The wicked sent against the righteous to make them more righteous? The evil given predetermined power over God’s people, a cruelty sent for the express purpose…of suffering?

Habakkuk’s idea of justice was shaken. “How could You, who are innocent of wrong, use that same wrong for Your purposes?”

So the man interrogated His Feeble God for His inaction and began to accuse Him of being untrue to His own character.

And God loved the fight.

(Excerpted from Martha Kilpatrick’s book, All and Only.)
