Trusting God in Troubled Times
Where is God when times are tough? Why does the Lord allow pain and injustice to occur? Does God have a plan for this world? Is God at work behind the scenes in ways we cannot see?
These are the kinds of questions addressed in the Old Testament book of Habakkuk. Habakkuk was a prophet who lived during an exceedingly difficult season of history. In the late 7th Century BC, the Hebrew people had strayed from their commitment to God, allowing greed and injustice to corrupt their national life. Most of the tribes had been destroyed by the Assyrians. The few who remained were now threatened by the Babylonians. Amid this pain and devastation, Habakkuk cried out to God for answers.
Starting Sunday, January 10, we will begin a study of the book of Habakkuk, designed to help us trust God in our own troubled times. For four weeks our Sunday-morning preaching will work through this Old Testament book. Community Groups will meet remotely for four interactive studies on the same topic.
