KEY SCRIPTURE: Habakkuk 2:3 KJV” 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.”
The Lord gave the prophet Habakkuk a vision and asked him to write it down. Secondly, he asked him to wait for it, for it was for an appointed time. The word appointed time also means a set time. In our dealings with God we have events which God in His wisdom has set up specific timings for them. There are also circumstances that God has fully fulfilled in Christ, that one, needs not to wait for, but to believe and walk in it. One must know the difference.
The initial outpouring of the Holy Spirit was for a specific time and so the apostles and disciples had to wait for it. Act 1:4 KJV” And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me “. There are certain promises God tells us which are to be fulfilled in the future. In such cases, you must wait. So long as God gave you that prophecy, never give up on it, wait for it. Do not give up on anything that God promised to do in the future. Keep praying the promise into being. (1st Timothy 1:18)
There are other events which Christ Jesus through His sufferings and death has obtained for us. They include our healing, prosperity, deliverance from the power of sin, security, peace and many more. These ones are not set for the future. They have already been fulfilled. You do not wait for them, rather you possess them by faith and confess them into reality. Satan may raise resistances to you, but don’t be moved, the result is forever settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89-90). Do not hope for a scriptural provision which has already being fulfilled. Don’t say I am believing God for it. Note this: It is only that which you possess by faith that would ultimately manifest to you. Know the difference between the things you wait for and the things you possess by faith.
Thank you, Father, for your love. I take full possession of every provision that our Lord Jesus death has made available for me. I also wait patiently for every specific prophecy you have made to me.
