“Look among the nations, and see;
wonder and be astounded.
For I am doing a work in your days
that you would not believe if told.” Hab. 1:5, ESV~
Dannah Gresh’s Habakkuk: Remembering God’s Faithfulness When He Seems Silent is a six-week study that immerses us in the minor prophet’s three chapters with side journeys to the writings of a major prophet, Daniel, and other passages, Old and New Testament. Related weekly podcast episodes enhance the study. Videos are available for group study.
Habakkuk presents questions we often ask in our time of cultural disintegration and moral decline:
“Why do you make me see iniquity,
and why do you idly look at wrong?
“Destruction and violence are before me;
strife and contention arise.
“So the law is paralyzed,
and justice never goes forth.
“For the wicked surround the righteous;
so justice goes forth perverted.” Hab 1:3-4, ESV~
Habakkuk provides context for our own times.
Providing the means to deep study and meaningful meditation. Dannah leads us on a journey from wrestling with God when we live in unsettled times, to watching for God to work, asking questions embedded with truth, watching for God’s answers, fearing God, and singing praise to Him.
It’s discouraging to watch the news or even go to the grocery store today, yet we can trust that God is doing a work in our days that we cannot imagine.
Dannah Gresh reminds us of that truth through her study of Habakkuk. Do the study. Reap encouragement.
