I will stand at my guard post. I will station myself on the wall. I will watch to see what he will say to me and what answer I will get to my complaint. Then the Lord answered me, “Write the vision. Make it clear on tablets so that anyone can read it quickly. The vision will still happen at the appointed time. It hurries toward its goal. It won’t be a lie.
If it’s delayed, wait for it. It will certainly happen. It won’t be late.” Habakkuk 2:1-3 GWT
Each part of this verse is HUGE!
1. Stand at your guard post! This is my post and position. Each morning I come before the Lord and we talk, me to Him and He to me. I wait before the Lord because He always has something to say to me.
2. When He speaks, write it down so you can go back and read it. Sometimes its not for now, but for an appointed time or season. Sometimes it’s for someone else and not for you.
3. Allow your words to encourage others. Don’t post to gloom and despair, post the promises. Be responsible for giving out water to the thirsty every day.
4. What God says WILL certainly happen! It won’t be late but it may be delayed. Why is not important, but be assured that it will happen. What He said will not lie, it will happen just as He said.
What has God spoken to you that you knew was for you? Just because you haven’t seen it yet, don’t give up on the promises of God. He’s never wrong and He’s never late! Remember this my friend, God doesn’t wear a watch, that would make Him us and not the Great I Am.
Your position today is to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord! Standing still speaks of peace and rest, not moving or allowing yourself to fall down. Find God’s voice in the noise going on around you today and know that He’s got this.
Father, as I sit at Your feet in the quiet of the morning, I know that You are here with me. I sense Your stirring deep within my soul and I’m listening. Listening for Your whispers of love, fanning the flame of my desire for more of You. Take me into the secret place that my soul may delight in Your love. Sweet and satisfying are Your words, oh Lord.
