Habakkuk 2:1–5 NKJV
1 I will stand my watch And set myself on the rampart, And watch to see what He will say to me, And what I will answer when I am corrected. 2 Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. 4 “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. 5 “Indeed, because he transgresses by wine, He is a proud man, And he does not stay at home. Because he enlarges his desire as hell, And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied, He gathers to himself all nations And heaps up for himself all peoples.

1. The challenge of visions

The vision is for an appointed time
We do not always know the appointed time
Visions are of the future happenings

2. Complaining takes our focus off of the vision

People complain about the unknown
Complaining places the focus on the negative

3. Write the vision down

Inscribe like a tattoo
Wri
P
Describe - communicate the vision
Prescribe - read it over and over

4. Faith will encourage you during the wait

4. Faith will make the wait worthwhile
Patience is the key to seeing the vision
Impatience reveals a lack of faith
Patience reveals trust in the Promise Giver
The righteous live by faith
Wait For It - The promise is at hand
