Habakkuk Sequence

This short sequence is a timely gift to those who are overwhelmed by what is going on in society, in geopolitical events, and local political corruption, in morals and ethics and justice found nowhere! Habakkuk allows us, through this short book, to peer into his powerful relationship with God. He eventually had a word for the people from his God, but first, he had a complaint to his God on behalf of God's people. In the end, Habakkuk and all the earth must stand in silence and bow in submission, for the Lord is on his throne, and one day his glory will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea!

  • Sketch ​140. How Long O Lord? Habakkuk 1:1-2:1. Habakkuk the prophet looks around his 7th Century Judah society and complains that God does not see, hear or act against injustice. God responds and says, “Look and be amazed! I’m doing work you wouldn’t believe if I told you.” And God was right, Habakkuk can’t believe it!
  • Sketch 141. Mocking Riddles and Worshipful Silence. Habakkuk 2:1-20. God responds to Habakkuk’s two charges: If God is powerful, then he is not good. If God is good, then he is not powerful. God has a surprising answer, which comes in the form of “mocking riddles” taunting the powerful arrogant leaders, who will meet their doom in their time.
  • Sketch 142. In Wrath Remember Mercy. Habakkuk 3:1-19. Habakkuk is drawn into worship as he reflects on God’s saving work in history, and he expresses his faith that God will judge and will save, and be merciful in his righteous dealings with human life. God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.

More Topical and Biblical Sequences

The Sketches of Leadership are modular and flexible and do not need to be delivered in any particular order, so an experienced trainer can use them in their own context with maximum flexibility. However, some sequences of Sketches have a logical progression and topical continuity.​
