Habakkuk 2:3 Wait For It

Hourglass on stone

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of an end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3 

Waiting for something to happen is often very difficult for many people to do. They know something good is supposed to happen, but know when. As they wait they get anxious. Often they give up waiting and attempt to get what they were waiting for some other way.

One reason many give up is that what they are waiting for is dependent upon a person, and that person has been proven wrong or false before. Their trust is broken.

God tells Habakkuk that the revelation is waiting for the right time to come to pass. He is to wait for it to occur, because it is a promise and will not come late.

There are many promises of God that has been revealed in scripture. Along with those promises many believers have been given a direct revelation or promise by God.

As with all promises of revelation, one must wait for them to occur. God’s promises will occur, but not until the perfect timing of God has come.

The greatest promise to have yet to occur is the return of Jesus to wipe out all sin and death for eternity. Many believers have fallen away in giving up hope in God’s promises. They chose to find some other way to live.

Each believer must look at the promises that has already been fulfilled. God has revealed many things that have already come to pass. If God has fulfilled all of those promises already, He will surely continue to fulfill the rest in the perfect time.

You may be waiting for a promise of God to occur. It could be one of healing, salvation of someone, provision, or some other need in in your life or someone else’s life whom you love. Hold on to the promises of God that has been revealed to you. The promise will come true at the right time.

The devil and the world will strive to get you to give up and take your own path to get what you want. Don’t give in to fear or impatience. Keep trusting God’s word to you. God has never failed yet, and will not start with you.

Keep waiting for God to answer your prayers in fulfillment of the revelation you have received.

I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Lord; that you will know the revelation God has made; that God will give you patience as you wait for His answer; and that you will see God fulfill every promise.

Micah 7:7 Watching And Waiting

Watching and waiting

But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me. Micah 7:7 

When a person is driving down the road and suddenly his car breaks down he begins to wait. He will make a call for a tow truck to come and rescue him from being stranded in the middle of nowhere with a broken vehicle. Once the call is made, he watches and waits in hope for the one to save him from his troubles. He has hope in the tow truck driver.

During the time of Micah, the nation of Israel was being overrun and destroyed. There appeared to be no hope. Yet, Micah says that he will watch and wait in hope for God to hear him and save him.

In recent weeks there has come a time of destruction, violence and sickness across the land of America and many other nations that has not been experienced in many years. Fear of sickness or death is gripping the hearts of millions of people. There does not appear to be any hope left.

Most people are looking to the government and other leaders to bring an end to the death and destruction. They are putting a false hope in other people.

Believers are to look to God for their salvation, both the salvation of the souls and their bodies. God is still in control, even though He may appear to be distant. He is in the process of redeeming those who love and serve Him.

Until God does a work and removes the destruction and sickness from the land, people must watch for God to move and wait for Him to move. Everything will be done in His perfect timing. God hears the prayers of those who call upon Him in their days of trouble.

You may be crying out to God to be rescued from some situation in your life that is currently threatening you. Do not stop watching and waiting for His answer. God hears your cries.

Know that God hears you and will save you in the end. It may be by removing the situation from you or it may be by removing you from the situation. Either way you must watch and wait for His move in your life. Do not give up watching or waiting upon God, He is faithful and will do what He has promised.

I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will watch for God’s move in your life; that you will wait patiently for God to meet your needs; and that you will see God work in your life. 

Daniel 10:12 Waiting For An Answer

Sitting and waiting

Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. Daniel 10:12 

Waiting for an answer can try a person’s patience sometimes. People make a phone call to a company and may sit on hold waiting to get an answer for an hour. Many will give up waiting for that answer and try to get an answer some other way.

In today’s society people want answers immediately in the Google fashion. They want to be able to type in a question and within seconds get a million possible answers.

Daniel had had a vision and wanted to know what it meant. He immediately began to fast and pray for an answer. On day 24 was when he got his answer from an angel. The process to give Daniel answer was started upon his first request.

Just as people desire an immediate answer in this world, believers often want immediate answers from God. There is a battle going on in the spiritual realm that God and His angels are fighting. As they are fighting this battle it may take some time to answer a prayer.

Daniel did not give up waiting on God for an answer. He did not seek out alternate sources for an answer, but only waited for God’s answer. Daniel also humbled himself and prayed for the answer.

Believers today need to be willing to humble themselves and begin praying and seeking God for answers in this life. As they do this, they must also wait for His answer. God will always answer, though it may not always be immediately. It will always be in His perfect timing.

You may be seeking an answer from God. Do not give up waiting for God to answer. Keep seeking and listening to His voice and waiting for His perfect answer in the perfect time.

There can be a thousand reasons why God does not answer immediately. Michael was detained by others to keep him from answering Daniel’s prayer. Others may be detaining the angel or one to answer your prayer.

Keep yourself humble and waiting upon God for His answer. Trust in God’s perfect timing and direction for everything in your life. God will never fail you. God will not ignore you when you are humble before Him and put Him first.

I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will seek God to answer your questions of understanding; that you will wait patiently and humbly for God’s answer; and that God will give you full understanding.
