“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hurries toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it delays, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay long.” (Habakkuk 2:3)
In this broadcast I share on importance of hearing from the Lord and having faith in the unseen things to come. I entered full-time ministry in 1995. My journey into the prophetic unfolded beginning around 2004 with Scriptures from Habakkuk 2:1-4:
“Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others. This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed. “Look at the proud! They trust in themselves, and their lives are crooked. But the righteous will live by their faithfulness to God.”
Vision: in this context is not goals or plans, but rather divine inspiration, illumination, revelation, prophetic insight into God’s will, purposes and intent for His Church.
The prophet Habakkuk initiated a conversation with God based on his distress about God’s “inaction” in the world. The way he described Judah indicates a low time in its history (Habakkuk 1:6; 2:1; 3:16).
It reminds us that while God may seem silent and uninvolved in our world, He always has a plan to deal with evil and always works out justice . . . eventually. The example of the prophet Habakkuk encourages believers to wait on the Lord, expecting that He will indeed work out all things for our good (Romans 8:28).
My prayer is that the Spirit of wisdom and revelation knowledge of the Son of God, will give full knowledge of our inheritance in Christ (Eph. 1:16-23).
The vision is for an appointed time … wait for it!
