Hab 2:3 New International Version
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.
God gives a vision, and it speaks of the end, what the future will look like. He does this to encourage our hearts to wait for the future he has prepared for us. He sees the end already because he created it. He is not limited by time like us. To Him, the past, present and future are all the same. He created time but lives in eternity. He indeed knows what plans he has in store for us and He sometimes shows us a glimpse in a vision so that we can be encouraged to wait for it.
The present situation most time has no indication that this vision can ever come to pass… but those who believe discover that God is a fountain of truth and he will never lie.
He doesn’t show the full picture at once, that will surely bring unbelief. But his words to us will be precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little… until Lebanon becomes a fruitful field and the fruitful field be esteemed a forest.
It is only the devil that promises things in haste… he appeals to that part of man that doesn’t want to wait for anything but want everything instantly… instant noodles, instant passport, even instant babies. But for God, time is what he has set in place to prove us and make us into someone who is worthy to carry his glory so we will not perish… for the glory is weighty and if a man is not made, he will fall beneath the weight of the glory. (Like Saul)
The vision gives confidence to go through anything that may be happening at the present. It instills discipline into you, it orders your steps, watch your progress and it will preserve your life until the fulfillment thereof.
Sincerely, there will come a time when it will look as if God never spoke to you at all…. The situation then may be coming to its climax… how worse could it have gotten for Joseph who thought God has blessed and comfort him in Potiphar’s house, only to find himself in prison. When it gets to that, know that the vision has come to its time of fulfillment and it won’t be long before it speaks. It surely would.
Be encouraged if you have a vision or a dream from God. He is not man, he CANNOT lie, and he is not the son of man, he CANNOT repent.
You may even wonder how shall these things be, how shall it ever come to manifestation. No WORD OF GOD is devoid of POWER. Nothing shall be impossible with God.
