Habakkuk 2: 1,2,3 -
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 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 just 2 more days for this year to end and the New Year to begin. Everyone would be anxious about what the year 2013 would have in store for them. Many would be making great plans to execute in the next year and the usual making resolutions for the year.
I would not like to dampen people's hopes but as for what knowledge I have the next year is going to shake up people's lives a lot. Before 2010 came the Lord had given a message of a change of era, a warning of the things that would come. 2013 will take this to the next step. That does not mean all will experience turmoil, the message I received was clear that the wicked will see great disasters, their bows and arrows will be broken.
Today's message talks of prophecies of things foretold. With regards to prophecies we need to know they are effective in 2 ways. One which we can bring to pass or make them happen, the power to fulfil these prophecies is with us, by the power of our faith or believing in them, like the salvation or the blessings of Abraham, these prophesies will come alive in us only if we believe in them. But then there are the other prophecies which we have no control over which the Lord says will happen in its appointed time.
When God gave His Word all things were put into motion and God being Omnipresent (in space and time), having knowledge of all things gave His Word. For Him what He spoke is already done or completed, since He has already been there but we unlike Him have not reached that place yet, thus for us it is yet to happen.
People may think they can pray their way and cancel these events. We need to understand what God has spoken even though He being omnipotent cannot take back His Word for what He has spoken for Him has already being done. Yes, there are incidents where in very specific events have been delayed on request and supplication but it did come to pass. But that does not tell us to lose hope for even though these events happen the Lord says He would take us through them without letting us being consumed.
So let us believe and bring to pass the prophecies that the Lord spoke unto us and regarding those which the Lord said would happen at an appointed time, let us await them at their set time.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, what You have said You surely bring to pass, in fact what You have already been accomplished. When we walk in faith it is not with a hope of victory but knowing the victory has already been accomplished we just do the needful. Lord, we know when we are in your hands even though storms will come, the boat will rock, but the boat will not overturn for You too are in our boat. Lord, we pray your people are strengthen in spirit...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
