Habakkuk 3: 18-19
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.
Respond. That's the last step of the learning circle. After a kairos moment, after reflecting and after repenting, we respond. This means that, beyond changing our minds about the way we see Jesus or about the way we behave, we also change our actions and the way we move through the world.
In the passage we read this morning, we see a portion of Habakkuk's response (after his series of questions and answers with God). It's not actually clear in the book of Habakkuk that he's entirely satisfied with the answers that God gave him. But in the last chapter, he sees God actually dispensing the justice that Habakkuk craves, and it seems to both terrify and awe him. His response is one of worship.
Worship may not always be your response after coming through the learning circle, but on the particular day that Habakkuk recorded his prophecy, that's the response that fit his kairos moment. What are some other possible responses? What responses might be appropriate to any kairos moments you're processing this week?
