A Hug from Habakkuk

The prophet Habakkuk reminds me of Jacob in a way. Not that Habakkuk was a devious schemer, but that both seemed to be willing to get very close to God, even if it meant “mixing it up” a little concerning their struggles to know Him better. Both men were spiritual “wrestlers,” in a sense. One thing about wrestling is that, when it gets intense, it involves a very personal “grabbing hold of.” This will sound weird, but, sometimes, the only difference between wrestling and hugging is the mental disposition of the participants. Habakkuk teaches us that, what may start out as a struggle to understand things about God that we can never fully fathom, may still end up as a loving embrace as we draw near to His majesty, grace, mercy, and assurance.
