“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come. It will not tarry. “ (Habakkuk 2:3 NKJV)
‘The Lord said to the minor prophet Habakkuk “For the vision... will surely come... “ (Habakkuk 2:3 NKJV)
Fulfilling your God-given vision depends on having a vision; which calls for waiting on God until He reveals His plan for you. Dedicating time and energy to it; this calls for patience and discipline. Knowing how to overcome obstacles; this calls for good management.
The Bible says: ‘Where there is no vision, the people perish… ‘ (Proverbs 29:18 NIV). A vision gives you direction, motivation, creativity and resilience. Without one you become passive, aimless, bored, and vulnerable to quitting. God can give you a vision instantly, but its fulfillment will require a lifetime of learning, practicing and managing life’s daily challenges. For the next few days let’s look at some vision-fulfilling principles:
Visions come with obstacles and opportunities! After decades in America, Raymond Dawson inherited his English grandparent’s estate. Returning home he found a run-down farmhouse and barns on land covered with rocks. Disappointed and about to return to America, he decided to walk his worthless inheritance one final time. Pausing on a remote corner of his property he noticed a stream coming from beneath some rocks. He investigated, uncovered some hot springs, and guess what? Today he’s the owner of a lucrative resort, right on the sight of his former disappointment! When you ask God for a vision, you’re likely to be placed in a field of opportunities concealed under acres of obstacles; a place of possibilities hidden beneath piles of problems. Then God will stand back and watch how you engage in the ministry of obstacle management!’ (UBC Australia)
