Pray that God will bless your time of fellowship in his Word.

  1. Is there a particular fear in your life that you have overcome? If so, how did you do it? What is one fear you’d most like to overcome now?
  2. Look over Psalms 42, 74, and 80. How are these Psalms similar to, or different from, Habakkuk's complaints?
  3. When you are weighed down with burdens and uncertainty, how do you put into practice 1 Peter 5:6-7?
  4. What phrases in Habakkuk 2:2-3 suggest that the message Habakkuk is about to receive is very important? God sometimes seems to ask us to wait for him to rescue and save us. Rather than wait, what things do we often do instead?
  5. Habakkuk was about to witness a time of terrible hardship for his people. Yet God assured him that, “The righteous will live by their faith” (v.4). How would their faith be tested?
  6. When has your faith had the toughest time to endure? Would you say that your faith and love for God have grown since you became a follower of Jesus? Why or why not?
  7. Waiting on the Lord is not being passive, but exercising an active faith. How do the life and ministry of Jesus Christ help you get a healthier spiritual perspective so that you can exercise and demonstrate your faith?
  8. At present, what hardships or injustices are most testing your faith? How can other believers best support you through this?

Remember to close in prayer for one another and for our church family as we together study this remarkable Book of Habakkuk.
