May 22, 2011 | Habakkuk 1:1-2:1 - Praying From the Watchtower: When God's Answer Leaves Us Unsatisfied

Last Sunday we started a new series of sermons on the book of Habakkuk - my favorite book of the Old Testament (Jude being my favorite book in the New Testament).  Habakkuk deals with the issue of the theodicy and is written from a personal perspective.  God's answers affect Habakkuk personally and wants to know why there is do much evil and suffering in the world (who doesn't?).  The book is profound and yet at times troubling.  Will we be comforted by the God that exists, or will we comforted by our idols?  Habakkuk makes it clear that idols do not comfort, only the true God does.

We began by looking at Habakkuk 1:1-2:1 covering Habakkuk's request, God's response, and finally Habakkuk's recoil.
