Habakkuk 2:3 ESV
For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end-it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.
So often we find it difficult to wait. Especially after GOD has given us a word or a vision in reference to a particular situation. As HE began to speak to me about the appointment (today's blog), I thought it's not easy for us humans to wait. We always want to know and with no idea of when, "it" will take place, the waiting can often be hard.
Then the LORD gave me the analogy of a doctor's appointment. We don't walk into the doctor's office (at least not most of us, LOL!) at 1:00 p.m. when our appointment is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.; yelling and screaming at the office staff because we are early, demanding we be seen right now. No, we may ask for an opening, and pray we receive it. But should we not, we sit and we wait, because we know that we have an appointment and that when that time comes, the doctor will see us.
I briefly thought, but we don't know when the "appointed time" is for our vision to come to pass. Yet, before the thought could be fully pondered in my mind HE said; "But you "know" that you have an appointment. That is your surety." Then I read the scripture again and the words stood out to me like never before.
For still [it exists] the vision awaits [it is waiting with expectancy] for the appointed time; it hastens to the end - it will not lie [ certainty; it's going to happen; it can't fail]. If it seems slow [not actually slow, get your mind right and stay focused] wait for it [don't give up, keep on believing] it will surely come [GOD's guarantee; HIS surety] it will not delay [at the perfect time; it won't be late; you won't miss it if you remain diligent and wait.]
The only way you'll miss this ordained appointment is if you walk away and give up. You've already showed up for the appointment. You've stepped out on faith and started the business, written the first several chapters of the book. You've got the drawings, now wait for GOD to line up your investors, provide free work space and so much more! HE's opening doors for you that no man can shut. Trust HIM; believe HIM and wait for HIM and then when HE speaks again, move your feet!
