How long, Lord, must I call for help and You do not listen or cry out to You about violence and You do not save? Why do You force me to look at injustice? Why do You tolerate wrongdoing? Oppression and violence are right in front of me. Strife is ongoing, and conflict escalates. This is why the law is ineffective and justice never emerges. For the wicked restrict the righteous; therefore, justice comes out perverted. (Habakkuk 1:2-4)

When have you been frustrated with justice? What breaks your heart? Do you most often have your own interests, others’ interests, or God’s interests in mind?

Today’s Challenge: Look beyond today. Justice isn’t often immediate. Hand your frustration to God, and let Him determine the best timing.
