The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see. O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! [even] cry out unto thee [of] violence, and thou wilt not save! (Habakkuk 1:1-2 KJV)
Habakkuk saw a burden. A burden in this case was a bearing or a caring that could not be carried. He was so burdened for his Israel. He was not afraid to cry out to the Lord. He was not afraid to question the Lord.
What burden are you carrying? What burden do you see? God is God. He can take it. He can take the hard questions because nothing is too hard for him. He already knows the answer before we ask. He knows the burden.
I enCOURAGE you to cry out to the Lord. Follow Habakkuk’s example. Release your burden to God. Invite Him in. He never intended for you to carry it. He will answer. He may not answer the way you expect, but He will answer.
