THOUGH THE VISION TARRIES
Habakkuk 2 verse 3: 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."
Have you ever had a vision from God? Have you ever had a clear word from God that he is going to do something? Do the months and years roll by without the vision being fulfilled? Have you almost gave up on your vision? Has the devil whispered to you, "God didn't give you a vision, God didn't speak to you, you might as well give up....look at you, waiting for something that is not going to happen."
Well, my friend, I am here to tell you that God is not man; He does not lie. All throughout the Bible, stories are recorded of men and women who have received a vision or clear word from God but they had to wait for it to be fulfilled. Time does not permit me to tell the full stories of Noah, how he found grace in the eyes of the Lord, received a clear word from God but had to wait days and years for the word to be fulfilled. How about Abraham and Sarah? God gave them a clear word that they were going to have a son although this seemed impossible. Sarah even laughed at the thought. Yet God fulfilled his word at the right time. How about Moses, who had to wait 40 years for his vision to be fulfilled? He was humbled in the wilderness before he could assume the position that God had created for him. I could go on and on about clear words from the Lord, visions and dreams, and answers to prayers that were delayed for God's purposes.
I say to you, hold on to your vision, your word from the Lord. It will surely come to pass. These little five words are recorded often in the Bible "And it came to pass". God's time is always perfect, although we may not understand why he is delaying. Remember how Lazarus lay cold in the grave for four days but then Jesus came and raised him from the dead? It appeared too late for Lazarus, but God received the glory. For with God nothing shall be impossible.
In 1987, I received a clear word, yes, even a vision from the Lord. This vision has not yet been fulfilled, but I feel in my spirit that the time for it to happen is rapidly approaching. Please pray that the Lord would renew this vision, confirm this vision, and that it would be fulfilled. Your word from the Lord, too, will be fulfilled. Solomon said it well in Ecclesiastes, "There is a time and a purpose for everything under heaven". May the Lord's will be done in earth as it is in heaven.
Isaiah 30 verse 18: "And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him."

In due time, it SHALL come to pass. Though the vision tarries, wait upon it. Guard it in your heart and meditate upon it. You WILL understand in time why you must wait. He longs to bless you (IS 30:18 Amplified).

Oh I so agree with you Irvin! ("Habakkuk 2 verse 3: 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.") It is God's VISION that I am waiting for: Gen. 1:28-Then God BLESSED them, and God said to them "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; HAVE DOMINION over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and OVER EVERY LIVING THING that moves ON THE EARTH.") For you see God did not send His Son to condemn the world but that the world THROUGH HIM might BE SAVED. That is my vision, and I through God am not turning loose of it! Thank you for sharing this.
