Vision Given by God Part 4 – Habakkuk 2:3

By Tammy Burke

Can you be certain about the future?

“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it testifies about the end and will not lie. Though it delays, wait for it, since it will certainly come and not be late.” Habakkuk 2:3 CSB

Do you have trouble communicating the vision of things as you see them? When God gives us a vision it will come to pass. It has a time. I confess, this is a challenge for me. But I’m old enough now to have seen several ideas come to pass. Many didn’t end up like I thought. I probably wasn’t listening to God. Others happened much later than I thought or they took place differently than I thought.

I don’t profess to know the future. I am certain about the future, but not my ability to see it or guess it. God’s vision will in-fact, happen. In fact, God, who is outside of time, has already seen to it. He’s in charge. God is answering Habakkuk. He was asking God about the things he saw that were coming and he wasn’t happy. But God’s answer was about the certainty of God’s plan. God will execute his plan. And his plan is to save all who will be saved.

Today, we can trust that God is on schedule and everything is A-O-K. He isn’t surprised or frustrated in any way. What we face is part of his strategy. That’s why we’re free to forgive and love our enemies. God is driving.

Still, things can be hard. Let’s look for God in what we do every day. Let’s draw near to god and encourage others to do the same. We can be part of God’s vision or we can miss it entirely.
