Are you not from everlasting, O Lord my God, my Holy One? We shall not die. O Lord, you have ordained them as a judgment, and you, O Rock, have established them for reproof. v.12

But how can you use the wicked to punish the righteous?

You who are of purer eyes than to see evil and cannot look at wrong, why do you idly look at traitors and remain silent when the wicked swallows up the man more righteous than he?  v.13

Write this down because it is coming.

And the Lord answered me: "Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. 2:2-3

God sometimes seems to be inactive, but He is involved.

God is holy.

God hears and answers prayers.

God sometimes gives unexpected answers to our prayers.

God is Just and God is Good.

Wait on the Lord and don’t harden your hearts.
