Sunday: Psalm 112; Habakkuk 2.6-11; John 15.18-27

From: Jared Kitchen

The imagery of Habakkuk 2.11 struck me while reading this Woe to the Chaldeans.

For the stone will cry out from the wall, and the beam from the woodwork respond. (ESV)

The Chaldeans used evil ways to have their city built, and now the prophet is warning them of their wrongdoing. Even the structure of the city itself becomes personified and starts up a back and forth of crying out.

I wonder if there are things in our lives that are crying out a warning to us. During this season of Lent as we put off our old self and put on our new, it will be important to actively listen. We know God speaks to us through his Word, which is an awesome blessing. I believe there are ways that God speaks to us besides scripture, and Lent is a perfect time to practice silence before Him.
