Waiting on the Lord to Work

What does it mean to live as an elect exile, a temporary resident in a world that is not our home? Two weeks ago we began to examine the writings of Habakkuk in preparation for our study of 1 Peter. Habakkuk felt keenly the tensions of living in a wicked world that did not acknowledge the Lord. But he waited on the Lord and learned that the just shall live by faith. The Lord truly is in his holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before him.
