Getting Beyond The Dip
Unfair week two message from Pastor Chris Russell on June 25, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana. The message that Habakkuk was hearing from God was just very difficult to wrap his head around. He didn't feel like God was being fair. If we are honest, we all have times in life that we feel like that. Look back at "The Dip" Getting Beyond the Dip: 1. Stop and Listen 2. Write and Remember 3. Wait and Trust James 1:2-4 Habakkuk 3:2 He is saying that he remembers and understands all that there is to God, but that he feels as though God is not following through on who he is in that moment. So if he as well as us at times are in the dip - we have to... Climb out of the the dip! Climbing Out of the Dip means: 1. Recall God's track record 2. Accept what God is doing 3. Trust what God is going to do Habakkuk 3:16-19 When you find yourself in the dip in any area of your life, choose to trust…. choose to trust and lean in to a God who is so passionately in love with you… a God who so desired to be with you for eternity that He gave His only son to take the penalty that we deserve for our unfaithfulness. Choose to trust a God who is FOR you, who has a plan for your life, who desires to have an intimate relationship with you. Trust the God who has an amazing track record and trust that what He is doing currently in your life and what He wants to do in your future is for your good and for your growth. And if you keep leaning in you will find that He shows up… time and time again. And your trust in Him will grow and grow and grow. And you will eventually get to the point, not that’s easy to do all the time, where you will trust your tomorrows to the God who has shown up time and time again in your yesterdays. And you’ll realize that’s there’s nothing unfair about Him after all.
