Questions and More Questions

Last Sunday morning we began a series on the small but mighty Old Testament book called Habakkuk.  It’s a book that chronicles two complaints and a prayer of a man who was searching for answers about his life and the direction of the world he was living in.  God met him as he cried “Justice?!”  God’s answer was surprising but revealing of His character, as He showed Habakkuk that He was going to use wicked people with evil motives, bent on destruction and personal gain, to bring redemption to His people.  The images clearly point forward to the cross of Jesus Christ, where God did the same.  God’s first answer to Habakkuk was summarized in the idea “When we cry “Justice?!” God says “Jesus.”  To watch this sermon click here

Tomorrow we continue our look into Habakkuk with Habakkuk 1:12-2:4.  We’ll encounter the central idea of the book, an idea that is one of the principal ideas in all of Scripture: “The righteous shall live by faith” (2:4).  After God’s first answer, Habakkuk came back with more questions.  God showed Habakkuk that He was working, but that elicited further questions from the prophet. 

Have you ever asked God these questions? 

  1. “How are you working?”
  2. “Why are you using these methods?”
  3. “Why is your timing this off?”
  4. “Do your methods and character line up?”
  5. “Why aren’t you making sense?

We’ll see God’s answer to these questions tomorrow morning at LifePoint Church.  Come on out as we gather to worship at 9:30am and 11:30am.

    As they says, “Hindsight is 20/20.” I have found looking back, that His way is clear and direct, we just can’t see it while going through the trials. As I find myself again struggling through another period of trial in my life, I try and remember how far He has brought me, and how much farther I still have to go. I will be eagerly looking forward to tomorrow sermon.
