“How Long, O Lord?”

October 31, 2021 Speaker: Oliver Chia Series: Hope

Passage: Habakkuk 1:1–1:11

“How Long, O Lord?”

Habakkuk 1:1-11



Introduction (v. 1)





How long? (vv. 2-4)





Look and be astounded! (vv. 5-11)





“Faithfulness to Jesus means doing all we can to model holiness and justice while also recognizing that the full revelation of his justice is yet to come. This is a matter for prayer, as modelled to us by Habakkuk, whose message is itself enclosed in his prayers and God’s response to them.” – David Firth.


Reflection Question:

  1. In the light of the cross, how am I growing my humble and persistent trust in my sovereign God?
  2. If I trust in my sovereign God, how should I live my life in the face of evil and suffering?
