Scripture Union Daily Guide 14th September 2022 Devotional for Wednesday

TOPIC: Be Patient: God Still Rules!

OPENING PRAYER: May the meditation of my heart be acceptable unto you, O Lord as I read from your word.

SCRIPTURE: Habakkuk 2:1‐20

Scripture Union Daily Guide 14th September 2022 MESSAGE

Notice what God commands Habakkuk to do (vs.3‐4). When we ask God our toughest questions, like Habakkuk, we must be ready also to obey His challenging assignment: to wait for His answer (v.3). Observe that God agreed with Habakkuk’s moral estimate of the Babylonians (vs.4‐5) and answered his second question – the punisher will be punished. God pronounced five woes on the Babylonians.

Read vs.6, 9, 12, 15 &19 again and identify the woes and the reason for each. Do you see any similarity with what our leaders in Africa are doing? This teaches us that a kingdom built on bloodshed, violence, oppression and idolatry cannot endure. All oppressive and exploitative leaders will be judged in due course. But while we wait for God to work out His plan, we must exercise patience and steadfast faith (v.4; James 5:7‐11), leaving matters in His hands. God will reward our patience.

It may not be as soon as we expect, however, He will not be late either. No matter what may happen in this world, God still rules (v.20)! All things are working for our good and for His honour. (Scripture Union Daily Guide 14th September 2022)

Practice/Word Application
Thought: Patience is a virtue that carries a lot of ‘wait’ (Habakkuk 2:20; Psalm 46:10). Pray for God’s help to experience this virtue in your life daily.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
• Father, increase my faith and let my patience and waiting on you not frustrated.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Luke 1:37 ‐ 38

One Year Bible Reading Plan
Ezekiel 46‐48.
