Chapters of Life: A Time to Die

Chapters of Life: A Time to Die

It’s the final chapter of our series, and naturally the final chapter of our lives, but one we don’t often like to talk about – dying. But the Bible has several examples of God’s people who did talk about it and model for us at least four ingredients of what it takes to “die well.” And doesn’t ending well have something to say about living well today? ...

I Will Rejoice in the Lord

I Will Rejoice in the Lord

As the conversation between God and the prophet draws to a close, God gives Habakkuk a vision of the fulfillment of his promise in 2:3. God will bring justice to the nations and set all things right. In the light of this conversation and revelation, Habakkuk responds with a profession of faith. As we wrestle with God about things happening in the world and in our lives, we are called to the same response of rejoicing and trusting in the Lord. ...

Chapters of Life: A Time to Reassess

Chapters of Life: A Time to Reassess

There are always transition points which come up in our lives, but as we age, they seem to come at us with greater speed. How do we handle these transitions, and find continued purpose in our lives when our children are out of the house and we've retired from our work? In these transitions, God reminds us that he is still our God, and he is still present in our lives. He also reminds us that he still has purpose for us, that we might be blessed, and bless others in return. ...

The Woes of the Other Way

The Woes of the Other Way

God continues to speak to his prophet by confirming the words he spoke just before this. These verses contain many woes for those who oppose God and choose to walk in their own ways. These paths will not end in satisfaction and happiness. God's reminder in these woes is also that this is not the case in following his path. With the Lord is life. ...

Live By Faith

Live By Faith

After hearing God's initial reply, Habakkuk has more questions. How can God bring about justice upon his people through an even more unjust nation like Babylon? As God begins to reply, he points the prophet and his people to a vision of the bigger picture of what he is doing. Often in life, we can only see what is right in front of us, and sometimes, that picture can be quite grim. God reminds us that he has not abandoned us, and that he has a grand plan in mind which hasn't been diverted. ...

Chapters of Life: Shaping a Generation

Chapters of Life: Shaping a Generation

We continue our chapters of life series by considering the stage of life which gives us the opportunity to shape those coming behind us, whether as parents, mentors, teachers, coaches, etc. God calls us to pass on the truths of who he is and what he has done to the next generation, and to consider also the way in which we do so. How are you being intentional about this, if this is the chapter of life God is writing with you right now? ...
