Sermon Subtitle: IF NOT WHY?
2 I will astand upon my watch, and set me upon the †tower,
And will bwatch to see cwhat he will say ||unto me,

But fat the end it shall speak, and not lie:

Because kit will surely come, lit will not tarry.
WHAT THE PREVAILING PROBLEM/SITUATION FOR WRITING VERSE(S)
Habakkuk has boldly challenged the plan of God to punish Judah by means of a Chaldean invasion. The prophet knew that God would respond to the challenge. The response, however, was quite different from what Habakkuk expected.
Habakkuk depicts himself standing “upon my watch” and “tower” to await a divine response to his complaint. This is a way of saying that he would be alert, like a city watchman, for any sign of response on God’s part. At reason’s end one must wait on revelation
