When God Doesn’t Embracing God in the Valley
Nate Drye   -  

Key Scriptures:

Habakkuk 3

Key Points:

    • What to do when you are in the valley: (1) Remember the goodness of God, (2) Embrace the promise of God.
    • Habakkuk means to wrestle and embrace.
    • You won’t have a Chapter 3 FAITH without the WONDERING of Chapter 1 or the WAITING of Chapter 2.

Get talking: conversation starters for your group.

    • Whats your favorite worship song? What does it say about who God is?
    • Its not uncommon to doubt God when life gets hard. What does this imply about what we believe about God?
    • Whos someone you know who seems to trust God no matter what theyre facing? What do you think is different about them?

Start thinking. Ask a question to get your group thinking.

    • Read Habakkuk 3:1-3. Describe a time when you saw the goodness of God or experienced His faithfulness?
    • How are you embracing God in the middle of a difficult situation? Or, how would you like to embrace Him?
    • Share how the faithfulness of God in your past has strengthened your faith today.

Prayer and Next Steps:

    • God, we will lift our hands while we’re waiting. Even louder than our fears, we will praise You. Because You are good. Jesus, You are so good. Amen!
    • Spend some time praying, thanking, and praising God for His goodness and faithfulness.  
    • Find some time to write about what God has done in your life and what you believe He is doing today.
    • Donate and help us help the folks on the front lines in our community.
