Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
Putting the Word into Action

Habakkuk was obviously someone of importance in worship services. (See 3:19 - the last sentence.) And he had the ear of God in the last days of Judah. He watched as his nation turned further away from God and he asked God how long this intolerable situation could continue. He did not like the answer he received, but his trust in God made him say that the just shall live by faith. Once again, those who worship God need to be on their names and pleading with God just as Habakkuk did! Maybe God will send a revival to our nation. But if He doesn't take heart in Habakkuk's example: the just shall live by faith.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
