The book of Habakkuk records a conversation between Habakkuk and the Lord. Habakkuk asked God why He allowed evil to go on in the world and good people to suffer. God's answer was that punishment for the wicked did not always come right away. Habakkuk took this answer and found hope in it and praises God. Habakkuk 3:18-19 "yet I will rejoice in the Lord. I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength he makes my feet life the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights."
