History Is in God’s Hands

History Is in God’s Hand

Has God raised up a nation to chastise America? In 722 B.C., God allowed the Assyrian armies to remove the Israelites from the Northern Kingdom and to be taken into captivity. In 605 B.C., God allowed the Babylonians to do the same thing to the people of Judah. The prophet Habakkuk had a problem with God using a heathen nation to chastise His own people. However, through his prayerful conversation with God, Habakkuk learned about the sovereignty of God; that history was in His hands. Even though Habakkuk still didn’t understand it, he said, ‘Yet, I will praise Him.”
