WHEN GOD SPEAKS

A LOOK INTO THE BOOK OF HABAKKUKH

Part 1: Waiting on the Lord

“I will climb my watchtower now and wait to see what answer God will give to my complaint.”  Habakkuk 2:1 LB

We are to wait on the Lord:

1.   With Patience


“The vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it.” Habakkuk 2:3


How to develop patience:


  • Chose humility


“Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.’ Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow.”  James 4:13-14


  • Chose to grow

“Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”  James 1:2-4 NKJV

2. With Perspective


“I will climb my watchtower now and wait to see what answer God will give to my complaint.”  Habakkuk 2:1 LB


“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”  Romans 8:18


3. In Obedience


“I will stand on my guard post…” Habakkuk 2:1a


“You should not stay away from the church meetings, as some are doing. But you should meet together and encourage each other. Do this even more as you see the Day coming.” Hebrews 10:25 ICB

4. With Joy

“The righteous will live by his faith.”  Habakkuk 2:4


“Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them.” Luke 12:37
