“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay” (Habakkuk 2:3).
While the prophet longs for an immediate solution, God’s word comes as a reminder that His work is accomplished on another timetable; a timetable not dictated by a watch or calendar. For a time conscious generation, this is a difficult lesson. We are the only country with a mountain named Rushmore. Instead of futile demands that God work on our schedule, we must wait faithfully and patiently as His purposes are being accomplished. It’s a matter of timing…His.
