Part 1: Finding God in the Dark Places
Series: Finding God
Jill Briscoe

People often ask, "Where is God? I look for Him, but I do not see Him. I listen for Him, but I do not hear Him. It is dark. So very dark. Not pitch black, perhaps, but my life is lived in shadows. How can I find God in the shadows?"

I. God in the Shadows - God's Name Is Never Mentioned.

A. Place.
B. People.

2. God in the Circumstance - History Is "His Story."


Part 2: Finding God in the Dry Places
Series: Finding God
Jill Briscoe
Exodus 3 and 4

I believe in Jesus, but for so long I've been spiritually dry. I made a mistake. A bad mistake! And since then, I've been living in a desert of regrets in a dry and barren land… thirsty, thirsty, thirsty. It's been a long time since I've experienced a sense of the supernatural. I feel isolated, marginalized, full of self-doubt - a failure.

I. Here Am I, but How Am I?

A. Confrontation. Ex. 3:4 and ch. 4

B. Facing up to Consequences.
1. Calling.
2. Holiness.


Part 3: Finding God in the Delays of Life
Series: Finding God
Jill Briscoe

Is your heart asking, "How long, O Lord"? Who or what are you waiting for? A job? A friend to be a friend? Someone to love you or for you to love back? Are you waiting for a break-or a baby? A child to say they're sorry, reconciliation, or an important prayer to be answered? Maybe you're waiting for the bullying or betrayal to stop-or lying, hating, injustice, corruption, or hurt. Or perhaps you are in a crisis of faith that needs to be resolved.

Habakkuk was a prophet living at a low point in Israel's history. We meet him asking God questions and struggling with the answers.

I. Habakkuk ENGAGES. Ch. 1

A. Wondering what God is doing.
1. A complaint. vv. 1 and 2
2. A problem with the divine government of the universe.
