Questions: Habakkuk, Chapter Three

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 three. If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. When is a time in your past when it seemed like all hope was gone? Did your circumstances and attitude eventually change? Why or why not?
  2. Read Habakkuk, chapter three.
  3. In this chapter, Habakkuk's situation hasn't changed, but we see him trying to have a different attitude about it. First, he forces himself to remember how God has come through for him (and for his people) in the past. 
    • What are some things you know God has done for other people in the past (maybe even including people in the Bible)?
    • What are some things God has done for you in the past?
  4. We also see Habakkuk try to accept what God is doing, even though it didn't make sense to him at the time.
    • What can make that really difficult?
    • What do you think would help you to accept what God is doing even if you don't like it and can't make sense of it?
  5. Then we see Habakkuk trust what God is going to do. He knows God, and knows God is trustworthy, so He chooses to trust Him. What situation are you currently facing where you need to choose to trust God? What would help you to live out that kind of faith?
  6. Accountability Question:  Are you inviting God into all your decisions?  What area of your life might you be leaving God out of?
  7. 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?)
