“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” – Habakkuk 2:3
If you read my last post you may recall me saying that I had the faith of the mustard seed, but the mountain didn’t move. Habakkuk 2:3 is my favorite bible verse. It adds an important and encouraging word to the sentence I just wrote. “Yet.”
The mountain hasn’t moved, yet.
I love this verse because I tend to be a person of vision. I am always visualizing a better future for myself and my family. Although I move towards my vision, it always seems so far away.
This verse is encouraging because it lets me know that there is an appointed time for my vision. I shouldn’t give up. I’d like to break down my interpretation of Habakkuk 2:3:
For the vision is yet for an appointed time There is a date and time somewhere in the future with the answers to my prayers already stamped.
but at the end it shall speak, and not lie – I can trust the dreams that God has placed into my heart. I trust the vision, the intuition, and the perfect peace that leads me. It will not lie.
though it tarry, wait for it – This word tarry means delays. There will be some delays. Delayed is not no. It’s just not right now. And when I experience these delays my only responsibility is to wait. Not doubt. Not detour. Just wait.
because it will surely come, it will not tarry – This needs no explanation. It will surely come and will not be late.
