Habakkuk 2:2

Write the vision and make it plain . . . ---- Habakkuk 2:2

Habakkuk describes his vision as, "The burden which the prophet ... saw" (Habakkuk 1:1). He "saw" it wherever he went. It drove him to his knees. He prayed, "O Lord, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? ... Why do You show me iniquity, and cause me to see trouble? ... the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds." Before God blesses you with a plan of action He will burden you with the problem you've been called to help solve. Lewis Braille wanted to read and write. But at three years of age he was blinded in a tragic accident while playing in his father's harness shop. Refusing to settle for a world of darkness he said, "I will make a system so that the blind can read and write." As a result, millions of sight-impaired people have been blessed by the Braille system (you see this in elevators and other public places).

The Psalmist cried: "The zeal for my Father's house has consumed me ... (Psalm 69:9 NAS). What's your all-consuming desire? What are you passionate about? What has God called and gifted you to do? Paul's burning desire was to reach the world for Christ. And he succeeded. When his enemies imprisoned him, instead of giving in to defeat he turned his cell into a writer's retreat and penned thirteen epistles that would change more lives after he left the world than he could ever hope to touch while he was in it. What are you willing to give your life to, and for? If your vision is truly of God, you will "feel" it.
