Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
I have been thinking about this scripture for a while. God has something to say to his church and to his people. God wants us to get into the habit of writing down what it is he says to us and shows to us. We need to realise that God might deposit something in our hearts that may not be for now.
Be ready and position yourself to recieve what it is that God wants to speak to you about because he might just be giving you something that is for an appointed time. Remember the vision is for an appointed time, not everything is for the here and the now. God could be showing you what is about to happen, he maybe speaking to you simply because he wants to deposit something in our lives that is for the future.
So many of us forget what it is that God has shown us and spoken to us because we failed to write it down. When you write it down you have something to refer to, if God gives you a word, make a note of it, this aids as a visual reminder of what it is God said to you. I have now got into this habit, if I get a word or God shows or speaks to me I write it down. Having written it down I now have something that I can reference, something that I can go back to.
Remember we don’t know when that appointed time will come but when it does we will have that to refer to. We are more prepared so that when God shows us the time in which that vision or word is for we will be in a position for him to use us.[spacer style=”1″]
