Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrongdoing. Why then do you tolerate the treacherous? Why are you silent while the wicked swallow up those more righteous than themselves?
It’s not wrong to ask God why he lets bad things happen. Habakkuk couldn’t make sense of it until he took it to the Lord in prayer. God’s answer was unequivocal: divine deliverance from oppressive evil will come and faithfulness to him will pay off in the end. Faith shines brightest in the dark.
