Habakkuk 2:1-2:5

I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the lookout tower. I will watch to see what He will say to me and what I should reply about my complaint.

Prepare Yourself

- Ask God to give you clarity

- Position yourself to receive His vision

- In prayer

- In the Word

- Take a posture of expectation

- Pen in hand

- Ears open

- Mouth closed

Habakkuk 2:2 (HCSB)

The Lord answered me: Write down this vision; clearly inscribe it on tablets so one may easily read it.

Receiving God’s Vision

- Record every last detail

- Become memory independent

- Could you articulate it to someone else?

- Meditate on it

- Share it

- Pass the vision on to those who need to hear it

- Repeat it regularly

Habakkuk 2:3 (HCSB)

For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it testifies about the end and will not lie. Though it delays, wait for it, since it will certainly come and not be late.

Don’t Get Impatient

- The vision may not fulfilled immediately

- The vision will be realized in God’s time

- Remember God is eternal

- Not bound by the constraints of time

- The vision will be fulfilled at exactly the right

time

- Determined by God’s perfect plan

Habakkuk 2:4-5 (HCSB)

Look, his ego is inflated; he is without integrity. But the righteous one will live by his faith. Moreover, wine betrays; an arrogant man is never at rest. He enlarges his appetite like Sheol, and like Death he is never satisfied. He gathers all the nations to himself; he collects all the peoples for himself.

Living by Faith

- The arrogant

- Take confidence in themselves alone

- Are never satisfied

- More is never enough

- The righteous

- Live by faith alone

- Place their confidence in God alone
