I’ve Heard About You

Hab 3:2 O Lord, I have heard the report of you, and your work, O Lord, do I fear. In the midst of the years revive it; in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy.

This verse expresses a profound awareness of the great might of God. The author has heard of God and, with a sense of awe, rightly fears what He can do. In the same breath, the author puts forward the request to God to manifest His power within his lifetime. He acknowledges that God is angry with the sin of His people, yet he pleads with the Lord to show mercy. He understands the character of God includes both justice and mercy.
