Habakkuk 1:2 2 How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!”
but you do not save? (NIV)

A good example of how a conversation can go between mankind and God is this book of Habakkuk.  Though it has a prophecy, it is basically the account of a conversation Habakkuk had with God.  Habakkuk wanted to understand why it appeared God wasn’t doing anything.  At first Habakkuk couldn’t understand.  He didn’t give up.  Habakkuk kept asking questions until he understood God is God and God has His way.  Most often we believers in God through His Son, Jesus Christ, go to other believers or other sources with our questions.  We think asking God those questions is a sign of lack of faith or unreverent.  God is our Father.  Fathers want us to go to them with their children’s questions.  I encourage you to prayerfully read all of Habakkuk.  It’s a very short book.  Besides being an example of how to have a conversation with God, it is also an example of how God uses something that is very evil and against God to correct and bring back into fellowship believers who have appeared to lose their way.
