I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guard post. There I will wait to see what the LORD says and how he will answer my complaint.
Habakkuk 2:1 (NLT)

Troubles were everywhere. The Babylonians were coming against the Jewish nation. They were brutal and Habakkuk the prophet was complaining to the Lord. “Lord aren’t you listening. Will you let them get away with this forever? Will they succeed forever in their heartless conquests?” But then he stopped and went to the watchtower to stand guard. And while at his post, he declared that he would wait to see how the Lord would answer him. Habakkuk knew the secret to listening to God. It is in asking the right questions. Rich Richardson in his book, ‘Experiencing Healing Prayer’ writes, “Learn to recognize that God is concretely present with you and then to ask good questions of this very present God. Then wait until he speaks into your heart and mind.” Jesus, Himself said, “I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me.” Today, tell God your complaints, ask Him relevant questions then wait patiently for God to answer.

Dear Father, I confess that I have many complaints but I don’t wait for You to answer. Today I come with an open mind and heart. Speak to me I pray. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
