Now Habakkuk was a prophet who wrestled with God concerning the injustice put upon His people. But here, He is reassuring Habakkuk that the appointed time for God to reveal His Will, vision & purpose will come…and to wait for it. Patient obedience is devotion to God, not misguided devotion to the vision He has given us. It’s reaching out for more of God…not satisfied with the status quo…our reach always exceeding our grasp. Or as Paul puts it in Philippians 3:12, “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Jesus Christ took hold of me.” But what do we usually do with that first vision God gives us for our life? We don’t wait, but rather rush off doing “busy work” thinking we are pleasing Him…but in reality dishonoring the vision God has given us. No wonder the vision usually remains dormant as a melancholy reminder of our first love. Waiting shows true faithfulness in God, and confidence that He will answer. And never giving up on that vision demonstrates our best for God’s glory.
