“And then GOD answered: “Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time. What’s God going to say to my questions? I’m braced for the worst. I’ll climb to the lookout tower and scan the horizon. I’ll wait to see what God says, how he’ll answer my complaint.”
Habakkuk 2:1-3 MSG
Habakkuk is in the old testament. He was a prophet and wrote the book around 629 BC. According to everything I studied, He had direct conversations with God. The first verse in chapter 2 clearly says that God answered. Habakkuk wrote what God said to him.
Don’t you love to have direct information from God?
This is the scripture that describes one of my services and so I read it to my clients before each Vision Session. At these sessions, we get quiet before the Lord. In so doing, we climb the lookout tower and scan the horizon. It is during this quiet time that God will often meet them at the point of their need. As I facilitate this process, I get to see first-hand what God can do when we are intentional with our time with Him.
The rest of our process follows the scripture. They identify the messages they believe God has given them and then we make a “vision message”. Today’s culture calls them a Vision Board. This board is kept where it can be ‘read on the run.’
This simple act of placing the ‘vision message’ in a prominent place to be seen on the run has created some amazing results. Not because of anything other than they kept God’s promises in their view.
Friend, God’s promises ARE real. His Word is FILLED with promises that are very real. Whether you take those promises directly from the Bible or you have a ‘vision message’ He has given you, keep it front and center. It is what you need. It provides hope of that promise. It keeps it ever present in your mind.
What has God promised you that you need to keep front and center? Do you need to write it out in big block letters so you can read it on the run…..see it before you walk out to the door to meet a client?
I encourage you to take a moment to think about the last direct promise from Him and find a way to put it in front of you. Whether it’s a fulfilled promise or one yet to happen, make it a part of your life in a big way.
