“For the revelation waits an appointed time, it speaks of an end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it, it will certainly come and will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3
When I went to sit down for my devotions this morning, I saw we were reading from Habakkuk. I paused and thought, now where is Habakkuk? Then I went to the table of contents….found it and proceeded to read(with no expectation, I might add, to find any nugget to take me through my day).
GODS WORD IS ALIVE AND ACTIVE!!! Truly, who would have thought that in such a small book, with so many questions, I’d find answers!
This is a word that reminds us God is in charge and working, presently working. Those who have heard a word from the Lord can be assued it will come to fruition. An ‘appointed time’ speaks of a determined time in God’s eyes. God KNOWS HIS PLAN, it will surely come. The assurance of the fullfillment lies in God himself.
I had a word spoken over me and my marriage 7 years ago. It was concerning the LARGE SUITCASE of blessing the Lord was coming to me with. At the time my marriage was less than happy, as a matter of fact it was really a wreck. I was spending much time calling out to God, with many questions(much like Habakkuk). When a women of God spoke the word of the blessing to come, I clung to that with all I had. I knew God would heal our marriage…and he did 3 1/2 years from the day of the revelation!!!
Patience dear one, the word from God will be fullfilled, He never FAILS. You can trust him, hold strong to the word, it may linger, wait for it! It is worth it!
