Habakkuk's dialogue with God is on hiatus . . . Habakkuk is in God's waiting room. Habakkuk has complained about God's seeming indifference to the violence and injustice in his world. God has affirmed that He is working His plan but Habakkuk doesn't like that plan and sees it as inconsistent with God's character. Having stated his position, he now waits. His waiting provides us with lessons for our times of waiting on God.
