Questions: Habakkuk, Chapter Two

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Micro Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Micro Group, feel free to use them on your own.

This week our series was The Crapper in which we're studying through the Bible book called Habakkuk. This week we focused on chapter two. If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. What is something you had to wait a long time for? Maybe something you really wanted, and you finally got it, but only after a long time of waiting?
  2. Read Habakkuk, chapter two.
  3. This week we talked about what to do while you're in the crapper (when your life is bad and God doesn't seem to be responding). The first thought was that you stop and listen. Instead of just complaining to God, we stop and listen for what He might say in response.
  4. Do you believe that God still speaks to people today? Why or why not?
  5. Have you ever complained to God, and then felt like God spoke to you? If so, what was it and how did you respond to it?
  6. As we're in the crapper, we also want to write down what we hear from God, or what we feel like we're learning. Do you journal what you're going through spiritually? If so, how does it help you? If not, how do you think it might help?
  7. We also have to wait. We learned that God always fulfills His promises, but often makes people wait before He comes through. Why do you think God's plan often includes us waiting? What might be good about waiting?
  8. While we wait, we continue to trust and serve God. What is something you're waiting for right now? And how can you continue to trust and serve while you wait?
  9. Accountability Question:  How have you passionately pursued meaningful time with God this week? Is there anything specific God seems to be saying to you?
  10. Prayer Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is this there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
