Falling into the trap of just going through the motions is easy, whether at the office or in the home or on the basketball court. The grind of life has a way of subduing us. Without realizing it, we are lulled into living lives that feel uninspired. These feelings flow into our spiritual lives as well. Fill in this statement: “The last time I was in awe of God was…” Your response may reveal a lack of spiritual vitality.
In verses 6-20, God declared five woes against the Chaldeans, reassuring Habakkuk of His promise to deal justly with their sin. Yet in the midst of these woes, God described a time when the entire earth will awake to the awesomeness of His glory (2:14). One day everyone, both friend and foe alike, will know that the Lord alone is God.
Some things have not changed since Habakkuk’s ancient prophecy. God’s people still slip into spiritual slumber, demanding a fresh awakening to God’s glory. Pray today that you would experience a renewed awareness of God’s awesome presence.
How can you infuse energy and vitality into your spiritual life so you will praise God’s glory even now?
