Habakkuk: Faith Under Fire

by | Feb 15, 2022 | 03 Series, Favorites, Old Testament

A 4-week Bible study on Habakkuk from Wednesday in the Word

“Habakkuk moves from burden to blessing, from wonder/worry to worship, from restlessness to rest, from a focus on the problem with God to a focus on the Person of God, and from a complaint to consolation. God turns sighing into singing if we (like Habakkuk) take time to wait before Him in prayer and listen to His Word.” – Ryrie Study Bible

01 Habakkuk Introduction

The Old Testament book of Habakkuk speaks to two of the most fundamental questions of the Christian faith: 1) How long will God let His people suffer? and 2) Why should we keep believing Him if we’re not spared the tragedies of life? Teacher Krisan Marotta on February 16, 2022.

02 Habakkuk 1:1-2:1 Habakkuk Complains

Habakkuk asks the Lord one of the most fundamental questions of faith: How long will you let your people suffer? The Lord answers, but not the way Habakkuk expects. Teacher Krisan Marotta on February 23, 2022.

03 Habakkuk 2:1-20 The Lord Responds

Habakkuk first asks why God would let evil go on so long among His own chosen people. Confused by the Lord’s answer, Habakkuk then asks how the Lord can let the wicked trample the righteous? Again, the Lord’s answer is not what Habakkuk expects. Teacher Krisan Marotta on March 2, 2022.

04 Habakkuk 3:1-19 Habakkuk Responds

Habakkuk responds to what he has learned with a song of praise and fear. In his prayer we see the answers to our 2 theme questions. Teacher Krisan Marotta on March 9, 2022.
