In this final chapter of Habakkuk, he has moved from questioning God’s power and will to praising his name. Even though God’s plans don’t always make sense to us, He is good and working for our good, so we can praise His name.
Have you ever felt like God ignores your prayers? Have you wondered if he knows what’s best for your life? In the first part of this term, we’re going to be spending some time hearing from Habakkuk, a prophet who was forced to wrestle with these questions, as God’s response to his prayers seemed to be anything but what he expected or hoped for.
Habakkuk ends his book with a prayer of faith, even in times of lacking. “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines… I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Saviour.” In this final talk of the series, Sam challenges us to express our faith in prayer, singing and spiritual disciplines.
