From Worry to Worship - The Just Shall Live by Faith

Truths from the Book of Habakkuk

Habakkuk: Meaning “He that embraces; a wrestler” or “the strong embrace of God.”  Context: Worshipping the true God in the midst of a disintegrating culture.  Main point: From Habakkuk worrying about national circumstances, to Habakkuk worshipping the true God.

1. The Prophet Perplexed (1:1-4) - Habakkuk sees great evil in the land and he is perplexed that God does not punish the iniquity of Judah.
2. The Lord’s Reply (1:5-11) - The Lord replies to Habakkuk that He - God - will use the Babylonians to punish Judah.
3. The Prophet Questions God’s Reply (1:12-17) - Habakkuk questions God’s choice of a more wicked nation to punish Judah.
4. God’s Answer (2:1-2:20) - The just people in Judah will survive, and the unjust Chaldeans will die.
5. From Worry to Worship (3:1-19) - The prophet Habakkuk, in the midst of horrible circumstances and an uncertain future, chooses to pray, trust and rely upon the Lord.

Recorded May 30, 1999, San Luis Obispo, CA.  A message given to California Polytechnic State University students.
