Habakkuk - Suffering in Strength

"You see it every day. Bad people taking advantage of the weak. Good people suffering. War. Injustice. Corruption. Ever think God isn't fair? Discover how an Old Testament prophet can inspire a modern day faith in God's Promises."

During this series our small groups will be studying through Habakkuk as well. Join a Small Group and continue the conversation and learning through the week! To learn more about small groups click here.

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

  1. When you first think of God, what comes to mind?
  2. Have volunteers read aloud Habakkuk 3:17-19. What most impresses you about this passage?
  3. How do you explain Habakkuk's ability to ‘quietly wait for the day of trouble’ while he was terribly frightened (v.16)? How would you have reacted to what Habakkuk had seen in v. 17?
  4. Are you able to trust and rejoice in the Lord regardless of your circumstances? Why or why not? Describe the strength Habakkuk sensed from God (v.19). How can we acquire such strength (Psalm 73:26; 121:1–2; Romans 8:35–37; 2 Corinthians 3:5; Philippians 4:12-13,19)?
  5. How does Habakkuk’s remembering Moses and the exodus out of Egypt (vv. 4-15) point us to Jesus?
  6. In the midst of our suffering, how does remembering, and rejoicing in, who God is, and what he has done for us, help to spiritually lift us higher, instead of keeping us down?
  7. What are some of the primary insights that you have gained from this study of Habakkuk? What are the implications from such insights for you personally, and for our church family?

Close in prayer for one another, thanking God for what he has shown us from studying this remarkable Book of Habakkuk.
