Two Meditation Questions

. at . 3 comments

This week I am reading and meditating on Habakkuk.

The class assignment is to write 10 or more bullet points indicating my most significant observations in two areas.

  • What does this passage teach us about God or His creation or their relationship to each other?

  • What does this passage offer to aid me in my Christian growth and how will I apply it?

It would be cool if you all joined me in my meditaion hunt. For the next several days, let’s just discover what this passage teaches us about God or His creation or their relationship to each other. Do you think we can find more than 10 things?

So who’ll be the first to share?

    I’m glancing back at my Habakkuk notes. I read this for my quiet time in the summer of 05. Here are some things I had written in the margins: (I’m not sure how much these will relate to the ?’s above, but just thought I’d throw them out there anyway…)

    * 1:5; I’m not good at seeing unfulfilled dreams and still longing for a deep and true relationship with God. And, this passage reminds me of the Psalm that says, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”

    * 1:15-16; The wicked worship the created, but we are wise to worship the Creator.

    * Ch. 1; God is patient and tolerant of my questions. He will answer and show His purpose in His time and I will likely be humbled by the pettiness of my complaint. When I ask God a question or speak a complaint, I should be ready to listen and receive what He says, no matter how humbling.

    * Ch. 2; It’s almost like God chose the Babylonians and allowed them to commit many evils so that He could show His power and receive the most glory. Evil will not ever go unpunished – even it it seems to in this ilfe.

    GOD is in control.
    God looks at the motives.
    What satisfies me?
    God’s will reigns.
    God hates evil and will punish it.
    God will be glorified.
    God is the only One wrothy of praise and glory. He is the only One who gives wisdom.

    * Ch. 3;
    vs. 1: see concordance on “shigionoth” it means the tune to sing this song to, but sung with deep feeling or emotion.

    Selah – to pause, stop, think and let it soak in

    vs. 2, “…Renew them in our day, in our time make them known…”

    Accept God’s discipline gladly and ask Him to help me change.

    vs. 18; choosing to rejoice and be joyful regardless of my circumstances.

    Wow, Monica, thanks for sharing!
    Some good meaty stuff here.

    God is patient and tolerant and in control.
    I am glad that He’ll discipline me. I really want to become more honoring to Him and I know discipline is one way He’ll show me who I am inside..

    I especially like (and need sometimes) the reminder to choice rejoicing when life isn’t what I think it ought to be.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to share your gleanings.
