Habakkuk does not start off by singing "though the fig tree should not blossom...yet I will rejoice in the Lord." He arrives at this place by way of conversation with God. He speaks of the injustice and violence that he “sees" constantly. And from this honest starting place, the Lord shapes and challenges that vision telling him to "look and see" the unbelievable work that He is about to perform.
In the process of talking it through with God and listening to Him and waiting for Him, Habakkuk's faith is strengthened and in the end he's able to say, "I will wait quietly...".
May we join him in this: let us enjoy regularly the privilege of taking everything to God in prayer and experiencing the strengthening of our faith and deepening of our joy in Him—regardless of our circumstances.
