“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3
I have been hanging on to this verse for a long time. I am very bad at waiting. Impatient. I am the one who is prone to running ahead of God, of wanting to help Him out. In My Utmost for His Highest recently (3/11) Oswald Chambers reminded me, “We cannot attain to a vision, we must live in the inspiration of it until it accomplishes itself… Waiting on the vision that tarries is the test of our loyalty to God… The only way God sows His saints is by the whirlwind. Let God fling you out, and do not go until He does. If you select your own spot, you will prove an empty seed pod. If God sows you, you will bring forth fruit. It is essential to practice the walk of the feet in light of the vision.” And so we wait. I wait. And I keep walking in obedience.
