    Evil & God
    In our third message from Habakkuk, the prophet goes deeper into his questions to God. Not only does it appear that God isn't listening to him, but God doesn't even appear to be concerned about the evil that is rampant in his day. This question can weaken anyone's faith. We make several observations that will help us see that God is right in the middle of the evil.
