Then the Lord replied:
“Write down the revelation
and make it plain on tablets
so that a herald may run with it.
3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come
and will not delay. (Habakkuk 2:2–3, NIV)
“This passage is a promise. A promise that the Lord knows and is. I will rejoice in the waiting for I know the ultimate is victory. Victory in the Lord’s time which is the perfect time. It doesn’t promise anything easy, but, it will certainly come.”
Think of something you had to wait for a long time to receive. Why was waiting so difficult?
In what ways does waiting become easier when you know the ultimate outcome? In what ways is waiting just as difficult as ever–or maybe even more so–when you know that outcome?
How can you better wait for the Lord to act in his time?
