“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,” Habakkuk 2:3, KJV
I’m excited!!!! It’s coming!!!! It can’t hold off too much longer!!! It’s almost here!!!
I see something that has me positively giddy. BUDS!!! That’s right, tree buds! Oh, does it get me worked up. When I see those pretty little things start to form on the end of barren tree branches it sets my soul soaring because I know spring has sprung. The season has come. It couldn’t hold off forever no matter how dim and dismal the weather may seem right now.
This anticipation is much like our spiritual lives. We know the promises of God. We read them daily in His Word. We have rehearsed some of them. Bound them in our hearts. Hold with a death grip on them. Yet, they are not here at this moment. But, it’s coming!
Often times the branches of hope in our lives can seem so barren as if no fruit or leaves will ever produce on them again; dry and lifeless things just blowing in the wind. But, it can’t stay like that forever. There is hope on the horizon that the promise of new life and productivity will once again blossom for you and me, bringing to pass the vision that God has for you in your life.
The Bible tells us, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven,” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). We don’t know why we often seem to be in a holding pattern but we can be assured that during the process God is working out His purpose in the midst of it all.
“Though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come!” When God appoints the process to be done and the vision plan to initiate, it CAN NOT hold off. It has to COME! I know, I know! It’s the waiting part that’s hard – tell me about it! But as a mother carrying a child, the vision has to be birthed when the term is up. It can’t stay in that holding pattern for long. It has to come forth. It’s coming!
Do you want to know something else? One day I heard the birds chirping. A sure sign that Spring has arrived. Pretty soon I’ll be planting flowers and such but right now I’m giddy over the fact of the potential for what’s on the way. It’s coming!
What are you waiting for today? The Bible says, “No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly,” Psalm 84:11. God is not our magic genie but He is a promise keeper. “Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations,” Deuteronomy 7:9. If it’s in His will and we are doing what we are supposed to be doing – It’s Coming!
We have a hope to hold on to today. Though we may not see it at this moment, the signs are around us. My promise is coming! “It will surely come and will not tarry!” Don’t Give Up!
SAY TO YOURSELF, “MY PROMISE IS COMING!”
