“This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” (Habakkuk 2:3 NLT)
Susan Boyle couldn’t win Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 but what she did surprised many. She was 47 years and unemployed when she went to audition for Britain’s Got Talent. According to her, she had a dream of becoming a professional singer but she hadn’t had the opportunity to make that dream come to pass. So at 47, she finally decided to move beyond her limitations. In short, her dream came to pass and the world applauded for her outstanding performance.
Could it be that you have waited for so long and nothing seem to happen?
The scripture says “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 KJV).
Everyone has dreams, aspirations, desires, etc but God has set time for everything we need. Consider this for a moment: Why does regulation permit a person to drive or apply for drivers’ license after certain age (say 14, 16, 17, or 18) depending on the jurisdiction?
You may have time set for your dreams but God, who is Omnipotent and Omniscience, knows the PROPER time to release the blessings. He is always on time. The vision you have is for appointed time.
But when [in God’s plan] the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the [regulations of the] Law, (Galatians 4:4, AMP)
Someone once asked me that “Why did Jesus wait for thirty years before he began His ministry? Don’t you think Jesus could have done more if He had started before thirty?”
I replied that “There is a set time for everything under the sun. And all we have got to do is to wait patiently, keep preparing our field, and Trust God for what He has promised to do. It pays to wait patiently than to give up.”
“Those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.” (Isaiah 40:31 AMP)
Friend don’t give up on your dreams. When you are tempted to give up, look up to Jesus for strength. Keep on moving forward and trust that God will work things out for your good. When the time is up, nothing can stop you. Susan didn’t give up. And her dream came to pass at age 47.
Be encouraged today that IT SHALL COME TO PASS.
