O well, my Father, guess I am supposed to back to the title for this post. Where Are Ye All At In This World Of Insanity? Indeed! This is a world of INSANITY!
I SEE! What do I SEE, my Father? Ha! I have in mind the whole euphoric world of happiness at any cost. Yoga & meditation is the thing of the day. Me? I been there. I done it all. Up goes my latest request about my past and my present, O my Father—O Father of mine? Just now the perennial question in my mind pop up, “Why do you let me see evil all around me?” The prophet Habakkuk comes into play. It all ties down to my past & my present, isn’t, my Father?
Dear, Reader, bear with me while I quote the Scripture. It is quite relevant to this moment:
O Master, how long shall I cry for help and You will not hear? Or cry out to You of violence and You will not save? Why do You show me iniquity and wrong, and Yourself look upon or cause me to see perverseness and trouble? For destruction and violence are before me; and there is strife, and contention arises. Therefore, the law is slackened and justice, and a righteous sentence never go forth, for the [hostility of the] wicked surrounds the [uncompromisingly] righteous; therefore justice goes forth perverted.
Your answer to the prophet:
Habakkuk 1:5-12 Look around [you, Habakkuk, replied the Master] among the nations and see! And be astonished! Astounded! For I am putting into effect a work in your days [such] that you would not believe it if it were told you.
Habakkuk 2:2-6 AMPC+
Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.
Look at the proud; his soul is not straight or right within him, but the [rigidly] just and the [uncompromisingly] righteous man shall live by his faith and in his faithfulness.
Hebrews 10:36-39 AMPC+
For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised.
