This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Habakkuk 2:3 (ESV)
Today I am encouraging you to hold onto that vision God has put on your heart.
Recently we talked about what is possible when we shift our thoughts and words. Now, I want you to know that each day you are moving closer and closer to the fulfillment of the vision God has given you.
When I turn to the Scriptures, I recall the prophet Isaiah’s account of Jesus’ crucifixion. During the days of Isaiah, Christ had not even been born yet, but Isaiah wrote—with great detail and accuracy—a riveting account of Jesus’ death. It reads as if he were standing on Calvary that day, witnessing the events in person.
I can only imagine that if he shared his vision with anyone else during that time, they may have thought Christ was coming in the next few months or even the next few years or at least in their lifetime. Yet we know that Christ didn’t arrive for several hundred more years.
Sometimes, we can fall into that trap of placing timelines on our visions. When things fall into place, we feel closer, and when they don’t line up, we feel further and further away. This is our limited perspective on things.
Isaiah’s writings inspire me because the account he gave was accurate and did occur; it just happened on God’s schedule. If God has given you a vision, know that it will come to pass. Hold onto these words when you begin to doubt: “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.” Habakkuk 2:3 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, remember: in His time.
