“O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear?”
This was the prayer of the biblical prophet, Habakkuk—crying out for God to hear him. Sometimes, even those with a deep relationship with God question whether He is listening. In Habakkuk’s situation, God promised His answer was on the way. Though he could not see a response at that moment, the Lord had a plan that would perfectly address the prophet’s situation.
We often find ourselves wondering whether God will answer our concerns. Whether our health, a job situation, concerns regarding a loved one or solutions to the nation’s problems, we want to see change now. Yet the Lord’s timing is best. He is never early or late. His answer arrives on time, and in His perfect time. He is listening—and will answer—in ways beyond our understanding. As Paul wrote, God can do more than we ask or imagine.
