God, You Confuse Me
Circumstances & Joy
Big Idea: Take joy in God, not circumstances.
Habakkuk 3:17-19 (ESV)
Habakkuk Rejoices in the Lord
17 Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
19 God, the Lord, is my strength;
he makes my feet like the deer's;
he makes me tread on my high places.

A prophet named Habakkuk knows what it's like. It confuses him. It ticks him off. It shakes his faith. So, he takes his complaint straight to God and unloads both barrels.
It's a questioning journey that takes him from confusion to confidence. And we get to follow his footsteps. Join us as we study our way through the book of Habakkuk.
