Habakkuk – Wait for itSeries: Habakkuk
In 1638, a medical doctor named Samuel Kinner was so taken with the limitations of man and limitlessness of God that he wrote a hymn, “Lord Jesus Christ, You Have Prepared.” In it he gives us this prayer, “Though reason cannot understand, Yet faith this truth embraces; Your body, Lord, is even now At once in many places. I leave to You how this can be; Your Word alone suffices me; I trust its truth unfailing.” It’s Hymn 312 in the hymnal we use. Find it. Make it your prayer, especially around communion time. This weekend, watch Habakkuk encounter the contrast between our limitations and God’s limitless nature. We’re so limited in our understanding of how the Lord keeps his Word, he tells us plainly, “Wait for it.” While you wait, worship him.
