From the Pastor’s Desk

Sunday, February 5, 2023

“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. Then the Lord answered me and said: ‘Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who read it. 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.'” (Habakkuk 2:1-3)

Open, honest, heart-to-heart relationship with God makes our devotion dynamic. Habakkuk transparent interchange with God models for us a real relationship with the Lord rather than a religious one. God invites us to bring our deepest questions, internal struggles, and turmoil before Him. He welcomes our questions and is able to answer them; however, be prepared that His answers may be different from what we expect.

Hearing the voice of God is the birthright of the born-again. We can take a posture before God that enables us to hear His voice. 1) Meet with the Lord regularly in a special place of prayer – “I will stand my watch.” 2) Look for God to speak to you in dreams and visions: I will “watch to see.” 3) Listen for the word of the Lord: “He will say to me.” 4) Keep a journal of things that God says: “Write the vision.” 5) Wait for God to bring it to pass. “I will surely come.”

Such obedience to our Lord takes us to a higher position and expectation of being what God has called us to be.

You are loved, Pastor Don
