1 “How Long, O, Lord” Studies from the book of Habakkuk Lesson 3

2 Habakkuk 3:1-2 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to Shigionoth. 2 L ORD, I have heard the report about Thee and I fear. O L ORD, revive Thy work in the midst of the years, In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.

3 Where is Mercy? Mercy is firmly linked to prayer. “A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to Shigionoth. 2 L ORD, I have heard the report about Thee and I fear.” Habakkuk 3:1-2

4 Where is Mercy? Mercy can be found in God’s power. 4 His radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand, And there is the hiding of His power. Habakkuk 3:3-4

5 Where is Mercy? Mercy can be found in God’s measurement. “He stood and measured the earth; He looked and startled the nations. And the everlasting mountains were scattered, The perpetual hills bowed. His ways are everlasting.” Habakkuk 3:6 (NKJV)

10 The Habakkuk Principle 18 Yet I will exult in the L ORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. 19 The Lord G OD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds' feet, And makes me walk on my high places. Hab 3:18-19

11 How Then Should I Live? Admit my fears. I heard and my inward parts trembled, At the sound my lips quivered. Decay enters my bones, And in my place I tremble. Habakkuk 3:16 “When I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee. Psalms 56:3

12 How Then Should I Live? Focus on God. L ORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O L ORD. Hab 3:2 (NIV) 16 When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me 17 till I entered the sanctuary of God; Psalms 73:16-17 (NIV)

13 How Then Should I Live? Make God, not circumstances the focus of my joy. Yet I will exult in the L ORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:18 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Phil 4:4

14 How Then Should I Live? Seek strength from God. The Lord G OD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds' feet, And makes me walk on my high places. Habakkuk 3:19 Do not be grieved, for the joy of the L ORD is your strength Nehemiah 8:10

15 Though the fig tree should not blossom, And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail, And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold, And there be no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will exult in the L ORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
