2007/11/06 – Evening Meeting (Rough Notes)
Habakkuk 1:2-3 – Habakkuk begins to complain to God about the evil in the land.
Hab 1:5-7 – God’s response is to send the ruthless Babylonians to attack the nation.
Hab 1:13-14 – Habakkuk complains that the Babylonians are more evil than the nation.
Hab 2:2-4 – God’s answer is the command to… Record the vision. Wait. Live by Faith.
“Except the unexpected and in the unexpected, expect Christ”
Hab 2:4 – The righteous will live by faith… not just the individual but the community.
Wait. If it is slow to come, Wait.
2 Thes 3:7-12 – Examples of the wrong kind of waiting
Heb 11:1 – Expectant waiting … not passive. It is one filled with hope.
Hab 2:14 – Promise that God’s glory will cover the earth. Habakkuk could wait because he knew who God was.
2 Peter 3:9 – God is not slow.
What has God gotten you excited about right now? Wait for it.
