Sermon Series: Where is God?
Crisis, questions, clarity, and surrender from the prophet Habakkuk
Two questions confound ordinary people in the midst of terrible circumstances: why is this happening to me? and where in the world is God? Sometimes we think these are unique problems to our time but, in truth, every generation all throughout history has struggled with the same questions.
Five centuries before the time of Jesus, the prophet Habakkuk, seeing the oppression of his people at the hands of a ruthless foreign power, asked, “O LORD, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear?” In other words, why is this happening? and where are you?
We’ve started a four-message series in the Book of Habakkuk that explores the at times cringe-worthy back and forth conversation between the prophet and God.
As we work through this study of the Book, we come to understand the only answer that makes sense and the only appropriate response to how God is working both in the world at large and in our individual lives.
Because this is a short book with a single heart-penetrating message, it is critical that you take in all four messages.
