This past weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our series “Turning to God in Troubling Times” drawn from the 7th century B.C. prophet Habakkuk. This week, we walked through Habakkuk 1:12-2:1, where the prophet lifts up his second prayer of complaint to God. I offered special attention to the idea of standing at the watchtower of our lives in waiting on God.
You can view a video of the message and the accompanying outline below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here.
Eyes on God (Habakkuk 1:12-13)
The character of God
Engaging with God personally
Words with God (Habakkuk 1:13-17)
The painful details of Babylonian invasion (1:14-16)
Two lingering questions:
- Why does God tolerate the advance of evil people? (1:13)
- Will it continue forever? (1:17)
Waiting on God (Habakkuk 2:1)
