Habakkuk is a different type of book involving a prophet. It doesn’t reveal what the prophet said to the people. It is a conversation between Habakkuk and God. Habakkuk has a lot of questions that revolve around “Why?”. Let’s review the first week’s readings.

Chapter 1-2:1

In verses 2-4 - What all is Habakkuk bothered by?

Are the things he is bothered by in the nation legitimate?

What did Habakkuk want God to do?

V. 5 God tells Habakkuk that something is going to occur which will utterly astound him(Habakkuk). What is it that will astound Habakkuk?

God is going to use the most wicked nation on earth at that time to judge the people of Judah(the southern kingdom of Israel). Verse 6-11 describes the Babylonians.

Habakkuk goes on to describe the Babylonians in verse 13-17. Habakkuk cannot believe God would do this. He questions God’s integrity.

You ever found yourself telling God what He must do or what He cannot do?

In 2:1 Habakkuk is certainly bold. He tells God, “I’m going to sit here until you answer.” God is so patient with Habakkuk. God doesn’t banish him, or threaten him, or tell him to leave. God deals with a man with honest questions. Though Habakkuk may be misguided in His thoughts about God, God is willing to converse with Habakkuk. What does this show us about God’s heart for transparent people?

Chapter 2:2-8

Verse 4 is one of the most important verses in all the Bible. A brief verse that carries such immense truth. A verse from the Old Testament quoted more than about any other in the New Testament. “The just…” - Who are the “just”?

To be “Just” means to be approved. From the New Testament how is a person made “Just”?

Not only are we made “just” with God by “faith” in Jesus, we are then to live by “faith.”

Habakkuk had a difficult time believing God would use a nation more wicked than his own to judge Judah. God tells Habakkuk that Habakkuk had to trust. God basically says something as this, “Trust me Habakkuk, I know what I am doing.”

What area of your life may the Holy Spirit be calling you to increase your faith in or renew your faith in? We are called to live by faith when things around us do not make sense to us.

Verses 5-8 God tells Habakkuk that eventually Babylon, the great empire, would fall herself because of hr pride.

Do you recall the purpose of judgement? God used judgement to bring His people to repentance and to turn back to God. God allowed things within the nation of Judah to grow very hard. If we pray for our nation to turn back to God, what must we be willing to see happen? As hard times come, don’t forget Habakkuk 2:4.

Amen amen. 😍

Monday, May 10, begins our reading plan through Habakkuk.
Habakkuk

Introduction (esv.org)

Author and Date

Habakkuk is unusual as a prophetic book. It never addresses the people of Judah directly. Rather it is a dialogue between the prophet and God. The prophet Habakkuk was probably a contemporary of Zephaniah and Jeremiah, and possibly even of Ezekiel and Daniel. He probably prophesied no later than the end of Josiah’s reign (640–609 B.C.).

Theme and Overview

The first two chapters are organized around Habakkuk’s questions and the Lord’s replies. Habakkuk saw Judah’s rapid moral and spiritual decline, and this deeply troubled him. Yet God’s response puzzled him even more. How could a good and just God use a more wicked nation (Babylon) to punish a less wicked one (Judah)? God makes it clear that both nations are to be judged and appropriately punished for their sin. Although Habakkuk may not fully understand, he has learned to rely totally on God’s wisdom and justice. He knows God can resolve issues in ways he could never have imagined. This God is certainly worthy of Habakkuk’s praise and worship, which is how the book ends.

Many of the righteous in Judah would have agreed with Habakkuk’s words. They wondered what God was doing and struggled with the same issues as Habakkuk. God’s words reassured them that he was in control and would deal appropriately with the nations.

Key Themes

God is just and merciful, even though his people may not always understand his ways (2:4).

Wickedness will eventually be punished, and the righteous will ultimately see God’s justice (2:5–20).

God uses some wicked nations to punish other wicked nations, but ultimately God will judge all nations (1:6; 2:5–20).

The key phrase “the righteous shall live by his faith” (2:4)
summarizes God’s plan for his people. It is quoted three times in the NT (Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38). Each time a different aspect of the phrase’s meaning is highlighted.

Celebrate Recovery

Tannehill Valley is seeking God’s leading as we look to embark in a new ministry called Celebrate Recovery.

What is this? Celebrate Recovery is a recovery program aimed at all "hurts, habits, and hang-ups", including but not exclusive to: high anxiety; co-dependency; compulsive behaviors; various addictions; financial dysfunction; eating disorders, those battling grief, scars of divorce or abuse, and many other challenges faced.

It is a Bible-based program that seeks to engrave 8 biblical principles in a person‘s life in an ongoing way. This program does not stop with telling people about a higher power but points to Christ as the ultimate healer.

On May 23, after the morning service, we will have an information meeting for anyone who may like to know how they can serve in this ministry. A meal will be provided at no cost, child care will be available. You will need to sign up. The state director for Celebrate Recovery will be leading this meeting that will last about an hour

They're definitely worth everything. That's why the world revolves around them and why our society is crumbling because the preciousness of women has been perverted and destroyed. But until I die I'll always protect and take care of the women in my life.
